Provider of testing, auditing, inspection and certification, training, and consultancy services, TÜV SÜD, has acquired the assets of Advanced Compliance Solutions Inc. (ACS).
ACS was co-founded in 2001 by brothers Scott and Michael Proffitt and partner Sam Wismer. Together they set out to reduce compliance-testing burdens for manufacturers and streamline the approval process. By providing flexible solutions, ACS maintain a strong focus on customer service, making them an ideal partner for TÜV SÜD.
All five ACS testing facilities in Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina are now part of the TÜV SÜD America organization. The combined organization now serves as a premier provider of testing and certification services for EMC, wireless, product safety, Energy Star, and other quality and performance evaluations.
This union of people, equipment and locations greatly expands the reach and capabilities of TÜV SÜD in the southeast United States.
TÜV SÜD Director of Sales and Business Development Doug Hughes said they are excited to welcome ACS to the TÜV SÜD family.
“They have been one of the most respected and successful service providers in the industry for more than 15 years,” Hughes said. “The integration of ACS into TÜV SÜD demonstrates our continued dedication to growth and excellence in the United States. In addition to anchoring our safety certification and EMC capabilities in the Southeast, it greatly expands our wireless testing and certification portfolio.”
ACS Co-founder and President Scott Proffitt said “if you surround yourself with good people who are the best at what they do, you’ll have a team that is ready to tackle any challenge and overcome any obstacle.
“Our long relationship as a partner lab has strengthened the synergies between our team and the like-minded staff at TÜV SÜD,” Proffitt said.
