Kiwa UK has announced the acquisition of International Fire Consultants (IFC Group), strengthening its international expertise in the field of fire safety advice.
With the acquisition of IFC Group, Kiwa adds a new service line to its existing service package in the field of Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) in the United Kingdom. Since Kiwa is a major player in fire safety advice internationally, the acquisition will result in new synergies with Kiwa's subsidiaries in other countries. In addition, Paul Brown, CEO of Kiwa UK, expects cross-over advantages for Kiwa's other businesses in the UK.
Brown: “I look forward to welcoming the IFC Group team at Kiwa. IFC's expertise and market reputation are a perfect addition to our existing range of services. Joining forces allows us to tap into many new synergies, opportunities for innovation and further growth, both within the UK and internationally."
"It's an exciting time for our company", says Graham Wiles, Managing Director of IFC Group. "IFC Group has been a leading organisation in fire safety assurance and engineering. By joining forces with a strong, trusted and forward-looking global player like Kiwa, we can further develop our range of services. We share the same values and vision, which will give us a firm foundation to support new and existing clients."
