A COMPANY providing environmental protection advice to businesses has opened a new office in Worcester.

Environmental Management Solutions (EMS) was originally formed in 2003 as a environmental consultancy firm specialising in Asbestos Surveys and Asbestos Management.

The firm has also broadened to provide Geotechnical Services and Legionella Management Services.

Jamie Perkins-Best, owner and director of EMS, is originally from Worcester and said he always wanted to set up in his home city, adding: "Having a Worcester office will help us service the client base we already have in Worcester and the West Midlands and hopefully it will also help us attract some new clients"

EMS’s new office base is in County House, St Mary’s Street, close to the City Centre.

Environmental consultancy includes assessing flood risk, waste management and recycling as well as emissions and climate change.
