Twelve months after acquiring Irish based certification body, Certification Europe Ltd, to act as its hub for international growth, Amtivo Ltd announces the acquisition of the Norwegian based certification body Dovre Sertifisering AS, as Amtivo group continues to grow its international presence.
Dovre Sertifisering AS has joined British Assessment Bureau (BAB), Certification Europe (CE), MyActiv and Equas Consulting, extending the Amtivo Group’s reach into the Nordic region.
Established in 1992 and head officed in Stavanger, Dovre has built an impressive blue chip client base for ISO accredited Quality and Environmental systems and, in the last 6 years, product certification for pressure equipment, and inspection.
Amtivo CEO, Mike Tims, announced “in the last 12 months we reinforced our UK business when Ocean Certification joined us and our group resources were strengthened with the acquisition of InfoSaaS, enhancing our ability to use technology to deliver our products and services globally. With CE joining us 12 months ago, we created a platform to internationalise our offer, so I am delighted that we are now joined by Dovre which provides an established presence in the core Nordic market. Dovre is a key player in the Norwegian market with a network of partners who can help us expand our business in the region”.
Commenting on the decision to join Amtivo, Leif Sivertsen, Dovre’s CEO, said “having established a market leading business in Norway, we are delighted to be joining Amtivo. We bring an established, fast growing presence in a key market that provides access to a region that is strategically important to Amtivo. We are excited by the opportunity to combine this with Amtivo’s unique go-to-market model, leading edge technology and range of products and services. This will enable us to provide a broader range of services to our clients and to innovate and look for opportunities across the Nordic region“.
