SOCOTEC opens its 4th European platform in Italy

DIMMS 140x120The SOCOTEC Group is intensifying its expansion with the acquisition of DIMMS Group, the Italian leader in inspection, measurements and analysis in the infrastructure and oil & gas sectors.

DIMMS Group generates revenue of €18 million. Clients include Italian’s main road, rail and oil & gas companies.

Its 280 employees work in 3 areas of activity:


  • Geotechnical and geophysical surveys for onshore and offshore infrastructure projects
  • Laboratory tests (soil, rock, construction materials, water, etc.)
  • Environmental measurements and analyses

DIMMS Group covers the entire Italian peninsula from five locations: two in the Milan area, including the Vimodrone headquarters, Avellino (near Naples), Ferrare (near Bologna) and Senigallia (near Ancona). 

Following the UK and Germany where the SOCOTEC Group made five acquisitions since March 2017, Italy will be its fourth European platform. This transaction bolsters its expertise in measurements and analyses, and extends the geographic coverage of its Infrastructure & Energy business line. It is fully in phase with the Group’s goal of being European leader in TIC in the construction and infrastructure sectors by 2020.
