Eco Logical Australia Joins Coffey, A Tetra Tech Company


03 February 2017

Coffey is pleased to welcome Eco Logical Australia (ELA), a multi-disciplinary consulting firm, to the Tetra Tech family.  

“ELA provides innovative, high-end environmental and ecological services and has built a strong presence in the Australian environmental sector. This acquisition expands our geographic footprint across Australia and enables us to bring leading technical solutions in the environmental and water markets to our Asia-Pacific clients,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO.

Ron Chu, Coffey’s Chief Executive Officer, said “ELA is a perfect fit. Like Coffey and Tetra Tech, ELA has a reputation of leading with science. ELA scientists are foremost experts in bushfire and environmental consultancies and will enhance Coffey's capabilities in this area.”

“ELA's vision is to be the most sought-after environmental consultancy, and we see our joining Tetra Tech as a positive step in strengthening our market position,” said Andrew Morison, ELA's Chief Executive Officer. “It's an extraordinary opportunity for us to join a firm that not only expands our environmental capabilities but also brings a much broader service offering in the water sector, tapping into a large global network of technical experts. We are looking forward to being part of the team.”

Tetra Tech acquired Coffey, A Tetra Tech Company in early 2016, and the ELA acquisition is the next step in advancing Tetra Tech's strategy to be the premier provider of consulting and engineering services in each of the markets it serves in the Asia-Pacific region.

ELA will be known as Eco Logical Australia, A Tetra Tech Company. The existing ELA management structure will remain intact, with CEO Andrew Morison joining the Coffey management team.
