Who we are

Our Vision

A specialised Australian Owned and Operated Engineering Consulting Firm, providing industry leading solutions to our clients.

Our Mission

To Provide Safe, Simple, Innovative and Cutting-Edge Engineering Solutions to Support the Australian Market.

Our Way

At ERM Consulting, we cultivate a can-do attitude. We breakdown the most challenging problems by simplifying and applying a first principle approach. We generate simple and generic models. We then build on these models and apply it to specific and sophisticated applications / systems. This enables us to provide Safe, Simple, Innovative and Cutting-Edge Engineering Solutions.

We believe there is always a way to further fine tune and improve the performance of your plant and equipment. There is no justification in tolerating repetitive breakdowns and downtime on site! ERM Consulting will always work on engineering solutions that eliminate the risks on site (safety and production).
