Acmena was founded in 2012 by Sue Milner, Katherine Eastaughffe and Graeme Cutler. Each a respected authority in their individual fields, the three directors saw an opportunity to combine their decades of industry experience and expertise in safety assurance, human factors and engineering management to form a company that could offer clients a uniquely integrated systems engineering approach.

Built on the shared values of integrity, collaboration and engineering excellence, Acmena’s talented, multi-discipline team has established a strong reputation for delivering pragmatic, cost-effective solutions tailored to the needs of both the project and the end-user.

Acmena currently has a staff of over 30 with teams of specialists engaged with major infrastructure projects across the country. As an ISO 9001: 2015-certified company, we cater to clients from a wide variety of highly regulated industries, ranging from multi-national construction and infrastructure contractors and government agencies to rail operators and local start-up technology companies.
