RPS is an international consultancy with a strong Energy group that has offices in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, the Americas and Australia/Asia Pacific and undertake projects in many other parts of the world. The Group is a constituent of both the FTSE 250 and FTSE 4 Good Indices.
The team who originally set up Ichron in 1995 will remain with the business and, together with RPS’ senior staff, will help in the development of RPS’ specialist geology services in the future. The expertise and experience of Ichron’s staff will further strengthen and broaden RPS’ already well-established specialist geosciences and reservoir engineering groups, providing a best-in-class capability that will be an excellent resource for clients worldwide.
The Ichron team will continue to work as normal out of its existing offices and laboratories in Northwich, Cheshire.
Whilst Ichron has developed very successfully over the last 19 years, the Ichron directors are pleased to have found an exciting way of securing the long-term future of the well-respected team that now works in Northwich. The acquisition of Ichron by RPS will provide additional opportunities for staff members at all levels and extend the services that can be delivered to existing and new clients.
