Quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, Intertek Group plc has acquired Dansk Institut for Certificering A/S (DIC), a quality assurance and certification company in Denmark.

“The acquisition of DIC allows Intertek to expand its capabilities and footprint in business assurance in the Nordic region,” the company said in a press release.

“With DIC's network, and expertise in auditing, certification and training for the transportation, energy, steel and metal and engineering sectors, it complements Intertek's current services in the region,” it added.

DIC audits and certifies customers' operations against a wide range of standards like ISO 9001 quality management systems, audit programmes tailored to customer needs, sustainability data verification, and health and safety auditing against local and EU standards.

DIC helps companies in the region to improve and maintain the quality of their operations and supply chain, and meet pressure to run their businesses in a safer, healthier, more ethical and environmentally friendly manner.

“The acquisition positions Intertek as a key provider of systems certification services across the Nordic region,” Intertek informed.

“By integrating DIC with Intertek's existing range of innovative solutions, customers can benefit from a more comprehensive assurance, testing, inspection and certification service solution,” it observed.

Headquartered in Sjolund, southern Denmark, DIC has 15 employees supported by subcontractors and generated DKK 16 million of revenue in 2014.

CEO at Intertek André Lacroix said, “The acquisition of DIC allows Intertek to strengthen our business assurance services in the Nordic region.”

“DIC is an excellent business with a strong track record of service delivery and we are delighted to welcome the DIC team to Intertek," he too added. (AR)
