TÜV SÜD has acquired the assets of Advanced Compliance Solutions, Inc. (ACS), significantly expanding its market reach and wireless capabilities in the United States.
The addition of five testing facilities, located in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina, gives TÜV SÜD a dominant presence in the Southeast. The combined organisation is now a premier service provider of test and certification services for EMC, wireless, product safety, Energy Star®, and other quality and performance evaluations.
“We are very excited to welcome ACS to the TÜV SÜD family, as it has been one of the most respected and successful service providers in the industry for more than fifteen years. The integration of ACS into TÜV SÜD demonstrates our continued dedication to growth and excellence in the United States,” said Doug Hughes, TÜV SÜD Director of Sales and Business Development. “In addition to anchoring our safety certification and EMC capabilities in the Southeast, it greatly expands our wireless testing and certification portfolio.”
ACS was co-founded in 2001 by brothers Scott and Michael Proffitt, and partner Sam Wismer. Together they set out to reduce compliance-testing burdens for manufacturers and streamline the approval process. By providing flexible solutions, ACS always put a strong focus on customer service, making it an ideal partner for TÜV SÜD. As a result of this acquisition, the expanded staff will remain dedicated to delivering tangible economic value to customers.
“If you surround yourself with good people who are the best at what they do, you’ll have a team that is ready to tackle any challenge and overcome any obstacle,” said Scott Proffitt. “Our long relationship as a partner lab has strengthened the synergies between our team and the like-minded staff at TÜV SÜD.”
