The Strategic Alliance between the companies would expand network of specialist safety and risk management (SRM) experts, and provide clients with a deeper pool of talent to help them minimise their exposure to operational risk, a company statement said.
"Through the Strategic Alliance, ARCADIS and Chola MS will collaborate on SRM and environmental projects primarily in oil and gas and transportation industries across India and South East Asia," it said.
"This aliance with Chola MS gives us access to specialist skills that will enable us to better serve our clients with these needs, particularly in Asia. I look forward to collaborating with them and introducing them to our clients over the coming months," ARCADIS Global Director for Environmental Solutions, Mark Fenner said.
"...We are very excited about the opportunities this will bring for our clients and our people. We have worked on a number of projects within and outside India and will allow us to work with more clients," Chola MS Risk Services Chairman M M Murugappan said.
