09 August 2012 Authored by Consultancy-me.com

International environmental consulting firm Trinity Consultants has opened a new office in Doha, Qatar, the firm’s second in the region. 

The move by Trinity Consultants, which executes over 2,000 environmental consulting projects annually, primarily focusing on air quality regulatory issues affecting industrial facilities, comes 1,5 years after it first set foot in the Middle East with the launch of an office in Bahrain. “We have made great strides in the Middle East over the past 18 months, assisting industrial clients on issues such as greenhouse gas emissions management, EH&S management information systems, air dispersion studies of industrial pollutants, and environmental training,” commented Jay Hofmann, Trinity’s President and CEO. 

With the new Doha office, the environmental consultancy will be able to work more closely with clients locally in Ras Laffan, Mesaieed, and Dukhan Industrial Cities, three hubs which house many of the firm’s most important Middle Eastern clients.

To head the new wing, Hofmann has appointed Arun Kanchan, a Principal Consultant and 22-year environmental veteran. Kanchan previously managed Trinity’s US operations in New Jersey, Dallas, and Southern California. He has a Bachelors degree in mechanical engineering from the Manipal Institute of Technology, a Masters degree in engineering management from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

Kanchan remarked, “Beyond its commitment to environmental protection, Qatar is a leader in climate change accounting and reporting programs amongst the GCC nations. In addition to our consulting work in Qatar, we believe that the professional environmental training that Trinity is able to provide will help equip local industry with the education they need to maintain this leadership role as the nation embarks on its Qatar National Vision 2030 with its special emphasis on environmental protection and sustainability.”

Asked how he believes the firm will be able to differentiate itself from its competitors, Kanchan noted, “We are unique in that we offer a valuable blend of environmental consulting, environmental management information systems, on-site placement of experts, and training for a market that needs exactly these types of services.”
