Eurofins Digital Testing acquires Edge Testing Solutions
Eurofins Digital Testing, the Bristol-based provider of end-to-end quality assurance and testing services, has announced the acquisition of Edge Testing Solutions, an independent pure-play software testing provider based in the UK, to extend its software testing capabilities, including managed, functional, performance and automated testing, across additional private and public sectors.
As part of the acquisition, Eurofins Digital Testing will retain Edge Testing's team of more than 250 people, and gain additional test labs in Glasgow and Birmingham. The company will also add Edge Testing's customers to its client base, which currently comprises a number of financial services and public sector companies, including the Student Loans Company.
"Edge Testing has an impressive track-record as one of the UK's fastest growing and largest independent software testing companies," said Johan Craeybeckx, Business Line Director at Eurofins Digital Testing. "Their highly-complementary testing solutions will further augment our capabilities to help meet evolving quality assurance needs in increasingly competitive and evolving markets. We look forward to a bright future together."
"We are remarkably proud and delighted to join Eurofins Digital Testing and collaborate to extend our software testing across the globe," said Brian Ferrie, CEO of Edge Testing Solutions, now a division of Eurofins Digital Testing. "This is an exciting opportunity for our staff and our customers as we look to embark upon our next stage of growth. Being part of Eurofins Digital Testing will take us to a new level. Together we look forward to providing a broad range of managed test tools and services and helping customers operate in a more nimble, DevOps manner to thrive in competitive markets."
