SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has acquired Finnish Nemko Oy. Nemko Oy and SGS operate the two largest EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) testing laboratories in Finland.
Nemko Oy, Finnish subsidiary of the Nemko Group, provides testing, calibration and expert services to the domestic and international telecommunication, electrical and electronics industry, as well as to machinery manufacturers.
The company employs 31 staff and generated 2013 revenues in excess of Euro 3.3 million. With this acquisition, SGS consolidates its leadership in the EMC segment and strengthens its calibration services offering.
“I am very pleased with this acquisition. With the addition of Nemko Oy’s operations, SGS will reinforce its presence and develop new activities in Finland”, said Chris Kirk, CEO of SGS.
