Sjølund, Denmark - Intertek Group plc (“Intertek”) a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, announces that it has acquired Dansk Institut for Certificering (“DIC”), a Danish provider of quality assurance and certification services.

As one of the leading certification bodies in Denmark, the acquisition of DIC allows Intertek to expand its global quality assurance capabilities within Denmark and the rest of the Nordic region. Intertek DIC will be able to offer a full range of business process audit and support services, including accredited third-party management systems auditing and certification, second-party supplier auditing, sustainability data verification, process performance analysis, and IRCA-registered auditor training.

DIC employs 15 people at its Sjolund, southern Denmark location and has been working closely with Intertek for more than 10 years as a subcontracting partner to provide audits in the country. This acquisition positions Intertek as a key provider of systems certification services across the Nordic and Baltic regions. By integrating DIC with Intertek’s existing range of innovative solutions, customers can benefit from an advanced level of quality assurance to meet performance, compliance and cost efficiency needs whilst minimizing business risk and promoting a culture of continuous improvement.

Calin Moldovean, President of Intertek’s Business Assurance and Food businesses said, “Customers are increasingly looking to work with full service providers to help them assess their performance so that they can evaluate and enhance their business. DIC is a trusted partner, bringing valued expertise to our existing portfolio of quality assurance solutions. Our combined technical expertise and global network of auditors and trainers will help our customers identify cost savings and measurable improvements to support their business strategy and growth.”

According to Erik Landgren, Managing Director Nordic and Baltic at Intertek, “DIC’s auditing and system certification expertise and longstanding customer relationships paired with Intertek’s comprehensive range of assurance, testing, inspection and certification services provides an excellent platform for a further expanded service offering in the region,” he said.

Niels Madsen, owner of DIC, said, “After over 10 years of close collaboration we are very happy to take this step and join Intertek. We look forward to being able to offer our current and future customers an extended range of services as part of the Intertek Group.”
