The Group acquires Survey Associates Ltd and announces the creation of SOCOTEC Monitoring UK, an entity dedicated to infrastructure monitoring in the UK.
Based in Uckfield, East Sussex, Survey Associates Ltd is actively involved in the monitoring of the London Underground, Network Rail and 3rd Party assets throughout London and the South East. This activity joins ITM Monitoring, who were purchased by the SOCOTEC Group in March 2018. Together they will become SOCOTEC Monitoring UK Ltd, thus creating a specialist monitoring division of SOCOTEC in the UK.
The acquisition of Survey Associates Ltd further strengthens SOCOTEC’s position in the UK market by broadening the monitoring capabilities already offered by ITM Monitoring, and provides significant opportunities within the infrastructure sector. By expanding its monitoring provision, SOCOTEC provides its clients with the benefit of a single specialist contractor to deliver analysis, design and execution of asset risk control throughout the asset lifecycle, from the planning and design stage through to decommissioning, mitigating the risk to people, property, budgets and timescales.
The creation of the monitoring division is fully aligned with the SOCOTEC Group’s goal of becoming European leader in TIC* in the construction and infrastructure sectors by 2020.
