TÜV SÜD is acquiring Global EMC Inc., of Ontario to meet increasing demand for EMC services. Since Global EMC was established in 2000, it has grown to include several EMC test chambers located near Toronto and Montreal that serve several industries. The company holds accreditations for industrial products, medical devices, household appliances, radio immunity, photobiological safety, and more. Ian Nicol, President and CEO of TÜV SÜD America Inc. said:
The acquisition of Global EMC Inc. will strengthen our presence and our service offering in North America. With a wide portfolio of offerings across many industries Global EMC Inc. complements our existing services and provides the perfect base for expanding the offering to our North American customer base especially in Canada.
The acquisition expands TÜV SÜD’s EMC services, which previously encompassed more than 20 EMC laboratories worldwide. Manufacturers work with these testing services from the early stages of product development to ensure product safety and compliance. “Our early involvement ensures that we can contribute significantly to the prevention of costly and time-consuming design problems or reworking, providing our customers with competitive edge and tangible value added,” said Nicol.
