Two consultancies working in the waste sector, LRS and Urban Mines, have merged. The Urban Mines team has been integrated into LRS and will operate under the LRS Consultancy name.
Paul Levett, LRS Consultancy chairman, left, said, “LRS and Urban Mines are a great fit and we are pleased to bring them together to create a stronger consultancy, which can respond to the changing needs of the market place as it seeks to address the opportunities associated with the circular economy.”
Peter Scholes, formerly managing director of Urban Mines, becomes a principal consultant at LRS while trustee Lynva Russell will continue to provide support to the management team.
Dee Moloney, LRS Consultancy managing director, right, said, “The merger signals an exciting new era, allowing us to enhance the consultancy services we offer to both sets of clients across the UK, helping to meet their changing needs and ambitions.”
Russell said, “Urban Mines has a strong reputation in market research, data management and analysis work, which will complement the LRS offerings nicely, and enable us to provide new services to our clients.”
LRS will maintain its existing two offices in London and Halifax.
