TÜV Product Service acquires Laidler Group

TÜV Product Service, a UK subsidiary of the TÜV SÜD group, has acquired the shares of UK machinery safety compliance specialist, Laidler Group. Operating from offices in Cleveland and Yorkshire, the Laidler Group has consolidated sales of £2.6million and 30 employees.

Offering machinery safety solutions to a range of industries, Laidler has grown at over 20% per year over the last two years. The company is designed to help businesses find the most cost-effective and practical route to compliance with the EU Machinery Directive and associated health and safety legislation, as well as providing them with practical solutions to meet these obligations.

"The acquisition of Laidler brings a wealth of experience in machinery safety to our UK organisation and a position in the UK that is second to none," said Jean-Louis Evans, (pictured) managing director of TÜV Product Service. "We feel that there are considerable synergies between our two organisations and that bringing the two organisations together will establish a much stronger Machinery Safety business for TÜV SÜD in the UK."

Paul Laidler, managing director of Laidler Associates, added: "We are delighted to be part of the TÜV SÜD group. Its excellent reputation and international reach will allow us to expand our activities at a faster rate than if we had remained as a standalone business. Our respective businesses in the UK are very complementary and we are looking forward to adding new activities to our existing portfolio of services, so as to provide even more comprehensive one-stop solutions to our customers."
