Spanish engineering and technology specialist Sener Group, which operates across the aerospace, infrastructure, energy and marine industries, is to acquire 60% of Australia-based transport and infrastructure consultancy Tactix Group. 

Established in 2012, Tactix operates branches in several of the country’s major cities including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, from which its 150 consultants provide road and rail engineering systems, design services, project management and assurance services for projects across Australia.

The acquisition of the company, which is subject to government approval, is part of Sener’s efforts to become a major player in country’s mass transit, rail and road sectors.

While the value of the deal was not disclosed, Sener said that the remaining 40% of Tactix’s shares would be retained by existing shareholders in Australia.

Jorge Sengadorta Cudós, CEO of Sener Group, said, “We have reached an agreement with Tactix’ shareholders to incorporate this innovative company in Sener’s Mobility business.

“Tactix has acquired a great position in the Australian infrastructure market and has proved some great capacities during the last decade. Together, we can jointly bring value to our clients and take on ambitious projects in the Australian infrastructures sector.”

As part of the transaction, Tactix’s existing management team remain in place with the company continuing to operate under its own name, “but with the benefit of Sener’s global resources and infrastructure”.

Ben Neary, CEO of Tactix, adds, “Tactix’s entry into the Sener group will enable us to accelerate our growth strategy, as we can now offer a wider range of services and target larger projects together with Sener.

“With this reinforcement of capabilities, we aim to become, in the medium term, the leading company in the transport infrastructure sector in Australia.”
