Socotec, a global risk management services provider, has just acquired a majority stake in Sophia Audit SA, a Belgian company originally founded in 1984 under the name AME (Audit Maintenance Energie).
The company's founder still owns a share of the capital, and in 2010 it recorded sales of €1 million with a workforce of a dozen employees.
A renowned specialist in corporate real estate technical management, Sophia Audit applies its expertise primarily in the following areas:
• Technical assessment and valuation of real estate
• Energy audits
• Developing technical specifications and ensuring maintenance engineering
This acquisition has allowed the Socotec Group to broaden its range of services to real estate owners, managers and users, both in France and abroad.
