COLOGNE, Germany and WARRINGTON, England, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in independent inspection services, is acquiring the UK company Risktec Solutions Limited. Risktec is based in Warrington in the UK and operates from 15 offices in the UK, the Netherlands, Middle East and North America. Risktec provides risk and safety services and offers technical training and education to highly regulated industrial sectors around the world. Risktec's core industries include the oil and gas industry, nuclear power generation and the railway sector.
CEO of TÜV Rheinland, Dr Manfred Bayerlein states: "Risktec is an excellent addition for us, complementing our established services extremely well and fully in line with our strategy for 2017. With Risktec we can now offer our industry customers further important services, providing independent advice on a wide range of risk and safety issues."
With its 230 employees, Risktec most recently generated sales revenues of more than EUR 34 million, with efforts focused particularly on the markets of the UK, North America and the Middle East.
Alan Hoy, Managing Director of Risktec Solutions Limited, commented: "We are very pleased to become part of TÜV Rheinland. The two organisations complement each other extremely well and share a common desire to provide high quality services to clients. Our aim has always been to work with our clients for the long term, over the complete lifecycle of their assets, and being part of TÜV Rheinland extends our ability to do this."
The acquisition of Risktec enables TÜV Rheinland to assist clients in meeting the demand to demonstrate compliance with increasingly stringent international legislation and industry standards. At a time when many industries are dealing with increasing technical challenges, associated with investing in new assets or extending the life of existing assets, they are also faced with skill shortages across the world.
This has resulted in high demand for the consulting and training/education services provided by Risktec. Risktec provides services to many of the world's most important industrial companies, including international operators of power plants and oil and gas facilities.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
