Who is Bureau Veritas?
Founded in 1828, Bureau Veritas, (“BV”), is the world’s leader in testing, inspection, and certification (“TIC”) services. The company is headquartered in Paris, France and has approximately 73,000 technical and support personnel across 140 countries.
BV helps customers across a wide range of industries address challenges in quality, health & safety, environmental protection, and social responsibility. Its teams are driven by a strong purpose to preserve people, assets, and the environment by identifying, prioritizing, managing, and reducing risk.
As part of BV’s 2020 strategy, the company is expanding its presence in the United States, especially within its Commodities, Industry & Facilities division. This is where BV’s acquisition of EMG comes into play. EMG’s national footprint, focus on commercial real estate, and mix of services and industries opens new markets for BV in North America.
BV has a history of growth through acquisition and enables its portfolio of companies to operate jointly and to further add services and value for its customers. Its expansion criteria are simple. BV strives to:
- Continue to provide best in-class services to our clients with expanded breadth and depth, and
- Give its employees the opportunities and challenges to keep them engaged.
BV North America is led by CEO, Natalia Shuman, who works out of BV’s North America headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For more information about BV North America, click here.
