BSI announced today it has acquired the EHS consulting firm, Quantum Management Group, Inc. (Quantum) of Clinton, New Jersey. This is the third environmental, health and safety (EHS) consulting firm acquisition for BSI on the US East Coast in 2016, and the fifth US EHS acquisition in the past two years. The five acquisitions in the EHS consulting space signal BSI’s clear commitment to expand its business improvement services to better serve its target markets.
BSI now boasts an EHS consulting business of over 350 employees, operating from 12 offices across the US. The expansion of BSI’s professional service offerings – in EHS and other areas such as supply chain, cyber security and information management – reinforces our goal of working with clients to ensure their organization is resilient.
The acquisition of Quantum adds important corporate environmental liability management consulting and project management expertise; strengthens BSI’s EHS services to the Pharmaceutical, Petrochemical and Manufacturing sectors; and broadens the geographical footprint of BSI’s EHS Services and Solutions on the US East Coast.
“Quantum brings considerable talent to BSI’s comprehensive EHS Services and Solutions portfolio,” added Glenn Fishler, President of BSI’s EHS Services and Solutions business. “With their strong management consulting expertise in environmental liability, construction management, and information management, Quantum strengthens BSI’s EHS presence in the US. Ultimately it bolsters our ability to provide our clients with the specialized EHS expertise they demand.”
Quantum grew from Eastman Kodak’s divestiture of its pharmaceutical subsidiary, Sterling Winthrop, Inc., creating a unique EHS consulting group comprised of principals who have significant experience in effectively managing EHS programs and projects for Fortune 500 companies from an “owner’s” perspective. Quantum’s experts provide consulting services for a variety of complex EHS programs, from due diligence and EHS audits to regulatory support, corporate reporting and remediation project management.
“We are delighted to welcome Quantum to BSI,” stated Todd VanderVen, President of BSI Americas Inc. “We are committed to bringing greater value to BSI’s US clients. The addition of Quantum’s world-class team of EHS professionals is another step forward in helping our clients become more organizationally resilient.”
John Lang, President of Quantum Management Group commented, “We are excited to join BSI’s EHS Services and Solutions team. We sought to find a business partner that wanted to invest in Quantum’s mission, clients and employees and we found the perfect fit with BSI. The combination of Quantum and BSI will bring greater value to our clients with a broader range of EHS and other business services, as well as a much expanded geographical footprint. We look forward to introducing Quantum’s talents to BSI’s extensive customer base in the US and abroad,”
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
