1984
Joint venture partnerships emerge with Beca Simons Ltd


One of the challenges of a relatively small country and economy is access to the most current global expertise. Beca recognised this early and was able to provide access to such skill by joint venturing with a selection of international consultancies. This provided its clients with the best of both worlds, namely the latest solutions blended with local understanding and accessibly. In time these joint ventures have also served to help take Beca’s own expertise to the world.

 

Beca’s first and most successful joint venture which continues today, was established in 1984 between BCHF and Canadian firm HA Simons (now Wood) to support clients in the forest products sector. Through this joint venture Tom Simons and Sir Ron Carter became close personal friends reinforcing the observation that relationships are always about people rather than companies.
