TÜV Rheinland and TUV SÜD withdraw merger application
Company officials made the decision to withdraw their application because the new conditions to meet regulatory requirements made it unwieldy to proceed with the merger as planned.
Although such a merger would have been an exciting proposition, TÜV Rheinland Group is well positioned in North America, and management will continue to grow the companys footprint in this important global region in 2009. We have great confidence that our North American operations will continue to be successful as we move forward, said TUV Rheinland North America Holding Companys President and CEO Stephan Schmitt.
TÜV Rheinlands operations in North America have grown at an accelerated rate this year by offering a broader range of services to the business community. The company acquired two materials testing firms: Unified Testing Services in July and Non Destructive Testing this past December. Additionally, TUV Rheinland started a new joint venture with Arizona State University in October to establish TUV Rheinland PTL, the largest photovoltaic and solar equipment testing center in North America.
