European Quality Assurance (Ire) Ltd. joins Amtivo Group

Home  /  European Quality Assurance (Ire) Ltd. joins Amtivo Group

We are delighted to announce that European Quality Assurance (Ire) Ltd. (EQA) is set to become part of the Amtivo group, a leading specialist in ISO and industry-related certifications. 

EQA’s highly respected team and strong product offering join Amtivo’s growing portfolio of international testing, inspection, and certification businesses, securing our position as one of the most prominent certification bodies in the Republic of Ireland. 

David Daly, Co-Founder of EQA, commented, “We are delighted that EQA has joined Amtivo Group’s fast-growing international network of businesses and it is a testament to all that the EQA team has achieved. As part of a much larger organisation, EQA’s staff and auditors will be able to benefit from the opportunities that will arise from significant investments in technology and staff development, as well as the commercial opportunities that will come from its substantial international presence.” 

With more than a dozen certification brands, from the US to Japan and many locations in between, Amtivo has taken the decision to merge EQA with Ireland-based certification body, Certification Europe, bringing both of our brands into their global, Amtivo family. In the coming months, we will both rebrand as Amtivo, resulting in our clients being supported by a much bigger team, based in Ireland, with all of the benefits of working with a much larger business with access to global resources and technology.  

This acquisition is Amtivo Group’s 17th since it was formed in 2018, under CEO, Mike Tims. Commenting on the acquisition of EQA, Mike said “The acquisition of EQA enables us to strengthen our foothold in the Republic of Ireland and to provide the group with valuable expertise, highly-regarded accreditations, and an established client base. It is also a natural complement to our existing Dublin-based brand, Certification Europe. The combined strengths of the two brands will bring significant benefits to the wider business and enable us to provide clients from both companies with a larger range of products and services, supported by a tech-enabled team.” 

As we journey through this exciting time alongside the Amtivo group, we want to express our appreciation to our customers for their trust and support. This collaboration signifies a dedication to progress, quality, and the ongoing success of EQA’s clients in the constantly changing certification landscape.
