The original practice from which Benbow Environmental has evolved commenced operations in Sydney in the 1980s as Dick Benbow and Associates. Since then the Benbow Group of companies has continued to expand and this has resulted in the formation of Benbow Environmental. Benbow Environmental combined Dick Benbow and Associates (DBA), Environmental Audits of Australia (EAA), and Australian Occupational Hygiene Services (AOHS) into the one entity. The formation of this single entity resulted in a unified team of consultants, with streamlined operating efficiencies and business processes, as well as enabling the organisation to continue to expand.
