Bureau Veritas pursues external growth strategy with the acquisition of TMC Marine

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, May 04, 2016 – Bureau Veritas has reinforced its position in value-added marine services with the acquisition of leading international consultancy TMC Marine Ltd.

“Our Marine & Offshore business, the historical activity of Bureau Veritas, is one of our eight key growth initiatives to 2020. As such, it is evolving rapidly. We are diversifying our service portfolio and developing our technological leadership in order to meet all our clients’ expectations in risk management. TMC is a recognized brand that enables the Group to enhance its offering to the marine insurance consultancy market, thereby expanding the services that we already provide in offshore to the maritime market,” commented Didier Michaud-Daniel, CEO of Bureau Veritas.
