Mining emergency management companies Dynamiq and EMQ have merged.
According to Dynamiq the two businesses have merged "to form a new full service consulting group".
Dynamiq founder Anthony Moorhouse explained that "the merging of the businesses was an obvious and simple fit".
"EMQ's quality consulting and technology services, reputation in the marketplace and business culture complement the Dynamiq business. Dynamiq now provides an even more robust Emergency Management Service offering to our clients".
Speaking previously to Moorhouse, he told Australian Mining that "Dynamiq is an emergency response and risk management business, we help clients and especially mining organisations to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from incidents which could affect their people, their operations and ultimately their reputations".
The newly merged business has around 170 people across a number of Australian offices.
The move comes only a week after fellow emergency response company Executive Risk Solutions won a $30 million contract to provide emergency services and risk management for the Roy Hill iron ore mine.
