Celebrating the 1-year anniversary TÜV SÜD America's acquisition of RCI Consultants
We recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of TÜV SÜD America’s strategic acquisition of RCI Consultants, Inc. RCI specializes in consultancy services, assisting clients in the oil and gas industry with development, construction and installation of production facilities and long-distance transportation pipelines.
RCI’s natural fit with the TÜV SÜD portfolio of services, along with its reputation as an industry leader, makes it a stellar addition to the extensive technical services that TÜV SÜD offers.
A perfect fit for our oil and gas services portfolio
Over the past year, RCI has been an invaluable contributor to TÜV SÜD America’s suite of services geared toward organizations in the chemical, oil and gas industry. Prior to RCI’s acquisition, TÜV SÜD's service offer focused mainly on companies in the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry, including oil refining and distribution. RCI was the perfect complement to TÜV SÜD’s existing services because it’s centered around upstream companies.
The acquisition has opened new markets for us, and has made it possible for TÜV SÜD to be a true one-stop shop for our clients in the chemical, oil and gas sector.
How the acquisition has benefited our clients
RCI’s offerings cover project consultancy and management, surveillance and inspection, quality assurance and quality control, and services in the fields of occupational health and safety and environmental management. RCI primarily services clients in the onshore and offshore segments of the oil and gas industry, focusing on complex tasks such as offshore structures, topside facilities, and sub-sea pipelines and equipment, including significant involvement in deep water field development.
The kind of end-to-end service that TÜV SÜD and RCI can offer together is critical for chemical, oil and gas companies today. As an ever-changing global industry, it’s essential that businesses throughout the value chain meet both international and local safety, environmental and quality standards.
