Consultant will grow its business from its Malta base in the Mediterranean and Africa

QS firm Robinson Low Francis is planning to expand its operations around the Mediterranean and Africa. David Thomson, the company’s new managing partner, said the firm would grow its business from its Malta base.

“We’re planning to expand in those regions through establishing good client relations,” he said.

“We are looking at a few pilot projects that we view as promising.”

The company expects to turn over about £11.5m in the year to 31 May 2012, an increase of £1m on the previous year. The firm’s growth has been bolstered by its energy division, Genassist. The division specialises in coal fired plants but is extending its services into the nuclear and biomass fields sectors.
