SAI Global Acquires UK Based Central Certification Service Limited.
On announcing the small strategic bolt-on acquisition the Chief Executive of SAI Global Limited, Mr Ross Wraight, said the deal helps to build SAI's business base in the United Kingdom and further serves to extend its assurance product lines in that market.
CCS is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to conduct certification audits to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and QS 9000. CCS was formed in 1989 and has more than 600 clients.
"This is SAI's third acquisition in the UK placing it in a good position to further extend its influence across the region. The move is in line with its strategy to establish a credible presence in key geographic markets," said Mr Wraight.
"Large multinational clients continue to demand one provider of business improvement and compliance services globally and it is essential that SAI continues to develop its reach in the Northern hemisphere."
The news comes following SAI's recent acquisition of EFSIS, one of the largest European food assurance businesses.
SAI now has a global network of offices in countries including: Japan, China, Thailand, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, the United States, Mexico, India, Turkey, Egypt, Australia, and New Zealand.
