Logistics Bureau, the specialist logistics and supply chain consultancy, based in Australia and SE Asia announce the acquisition of Dawson Consulting, long recognised as Australia’s largest full service Supply Chain Management Consultancy. (Note, that this acquisition does not include Microlistics, which still operates as a separate business entity).
Rob O’Byrne, Managing Director of Logistics Bureau, stated “I have long admired Mark Dawson, the founder of Dawson Consulting, and his fellow Directors for their success in stamping Dawson Consulting firmly on the map as a quality and reliable consulting business in the Australian market.
Bringing the Dawson team into the Logistics Bureau family will add enormously to our resources and capabilities not only in Australia, but our rapidly growing overseas businesses as well. I was lucky enough to work with the Dawson’s team some years ago, and it is great to have them join Logistics Bureau”.
John Dunphy, previously Managing Director of Dawson Consulting, remarked, “The acquisition by Logistics Bureau makes perfect sense, bringing the two major players in this space together. I look forward to working within the new business and seeing our success continue under the Logistics Bureau banner”.
Chris Garschagen, previously Managing Partner with Dawson Consulting, will now be leading Logistics Bureau’s Melbourne team. Chris commented that, “Bringing our two businesses together is very exciting and will provide an unbeatable breadth and depth of consulting services and resources in the Region”
