Marshall Miller & Associates merges with Cardno to expand global energy and environmental capabilities

BLUEFIELD, Va. —  Marshall Miller & Associates, a 180-person environmental and energy consulting firm headquartered in Bluefield, Va., has merged with Cardno, an international engineering and environmental consultancy with more than 7,000 staff working on projects in more than 85 countries, the two companies announced this morning.

Scott Keim, president of MM&A, said, “We're excited to join Cardno because we're always looking for ways to better serve our clients. Cardno and MM&A share a focus on serving clients, and joining Cardno provides opportunities to deliver more integrated services to our clients. MM&A's clients will experience business as usual, receiving the same strong service from the professionals they know and trust, however they will now have access to additional specialized services across the globe. Merging with Cardno provides our staff with additional growth opportunities ranging from expanding their expertise in international markets to taking on leadership roles in a growing organization. We're pleased to offer them these opportunities as part of the merger."

As the leading U.S. consulting firm working in the coal and coalbed methane industries, MM&A's energy-related clients range from the U.S. Department of Energy to global mining companies, the company press release said. Their environmental client base includes more than 500 private and public companies and local, state and federal government. MM&A is also an active participant in innovative projects such as the USDOE-sponsored Carbon Capture and Storage project.

MM&A has served clients in North and South America, Australia, Asia and Europe with a wide array of advanced engineering and scientific services in the mineral resource, environmental and carbon management industries. Specialized services include mining engineering, coal and petroleum geology, petroleum engineering, hazardous waste management, remediation, and wireline geophysics.

Paul Gardiner, president of Cardno USA, said, "Our merger provides both Cardno and MM&A with beneficial client opportunities. We see an ongoing need for strategic services that help clients make better decisions regarding resource management and infrastructure development. With MM&A, we now offer clients services such as greenhouse gas inventorying, carbon sequestration and carbon off-set credit verification. These services are becoming increasingly critical to our clients across various sectors globally."

Gardiner said there are many opportunities for both MM&A and Cardno to expand mining sector services in North and South America as well as Australia.
