Hatch is a global engineering, project management and professional services firm serving the metals, energy and infrastructure sectors. Its UK entity is being recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, an awards programme that acknowledges organisations that excel in four main categories: innovation, sustainable development, promoting opportunity, and international trade. The Queen’s Awards align with Hatch’s commitment to pursuing a better world through positive change led by sustainable solutions.
Solving today’s challenges
The challenges facing our world today are far different and more complex than ever before. Climate change, urbanisation, increasingly remote resources and digitalisation have all transformed how we do business. In turn, these challenges have changed stakeholders’ expectations of firms like Hatch. Today, Hatch is focused on providing holistic solutions to the world’s toughest challenges in order to create lasting, positive legacies in our communities.
“As entrepreneurs with a technical soul, Hatch is uniquely positioned and obligated to tackle the toughest challenges facing our clients and our world today: the energy transformation towards renewable power and decarbonisation, infrastructure development towards large, liveable cities with sustainable resources, and a shift towards a new, digitised world,” says John Bianchini, Hatch’s chairman and CEO.
In the UK, Hatch has broadened its focus to help solve the challenges facing its clients and communities. Hatch’s operations in the UK began more than 30 years ago, and for many years the company was focused on helping global clients in the natural resources sectors, many of whom are headquartered in the UK.
More recently, through a number of integrations, the company has broadened its full service offering to include the metals, energy and infrastructure sectors, working on projects ranging from community master plans to offshore oil and gas projects and beyond, in addition to the traditional metals and mining project development.
“We’re thrilled to have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade,” says Julian Clark, Hatch’s regional director for Europe. “Though we’ve been in the UK for many years, for much of that time our efforts were on helping our global clients internationally, so we remained a little-known gem in the UK’s engineering and advisory world.
“More recently, we’ve been focused on creating positive change within the UK, ultimately supporting clients such as BEIS and the Scottish Government in addition to many of the Local Authorities across the land.”
Hatch’s UK team boasts industry-leading experts whose knowledge and capabilities are sought both within the UK and abroad. They’re supported by Hatch’s network of 9,000 professionals across the globe.
Julian adds: “We pride ourselves in being a flat organisation that remains employee-owned. That combination results in a very entrepreneurial culture, where everyone is given the freedom to pursue solutions that are in the best interest of our clients. It’s how we remain current and innovative – and how we believe we’ll ultimately change the world by challenging the status quo.”
