HOUSTON, TX and BRUSSELS, BELGIUM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- Total Safety, the leading international safety solutions provider, today announced it has acquired Z-Safety Systems (d/b/a Z-Monitoring), designer and engineer of the Z-Monitoring Centralized Confined Space Monitoring System, from Z-Group. Z-Monitoring developed the only globally patented system to safely monitor and communicate with confined space personnel. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Z-Monitoring and Total Safety have worked together for the past decade bringing these systems to bear in Europe and, jointly, introduced the technology to the United States market two years ago with many successful projects completed to date. That relationship helped forge this new formal partnership where the Z-Monitoring engineers, patent portfolio, and rental fleet -- including Z-Spider gas detection systems and the Z-Gate solutions -- are now firmly part of the inventive team at Total Safety.
"The Z-Monitoring system, field-tested more than 100 times during major facility maintenance turnarounds in Europe and the United States, has been an excellent addition to our integrated safety solutions portfolio," said Total Safety Chief Executive Officer Troy Thacker. "We are pleased to incorporate the system and patent portfolio into our worldwide operations and, with their outstanding engineers on the Total Safety team, plan to continue our investment in innovative and comprehensive solutions that enhance safety for our customers' workforces around the world."
"We are extremely pleased to further integrate our inventive and technologically driven products into Total Safety," said Matty Zadnikar, CEO of Z-Group. "Together we provide our customers with the essential balance between man and technology."
This is Total Safety's second acquisition of a business from Z-Group. The first acquisition was of Z-Safety Services in 2011. Z-Staffing, Z-Matic, and Z-Tracker operations, the remaining elements of the Z-Group, are unaffected by the transaction.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
