New SGS-TÜV dual brand launched in Russia
SGS-TÜV GmbH - Ein Unternehmen der SGS-Gruppe und des TÜV Saarland e.V., the joint-venture established by SGS Société Générale de Surveillance Holding (Deutschland) GmbH and TÜV Saarland e.V., has launched international certification of management systems according to the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards under the dual SGS-TÜV brand. The new certification mark has been designed to meet the needs of industries such as automotive and metallurgy.
The services of SGS-TÜV GmbH include surveillance, inspection and certification focusing on product and occupational safety. In 2009, SGS-TÜV GmbH gained its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations for the dual brand SGS-TÜV. This special brand has been made available first in Germany.
The new dual brand SGS-TÜV is now available outside Germany as a real alternative to the well-established international certification brands. SGS-TÜV combines the brand of the global market leader in system certification - SGS - with a German premium brand - TÜV of TÜV Saarland e.V.
SGS-TÜV GmbH and SGS Vostok Limited, the Russian subsidiary of SGS, have now signed a Cooperation Agreement for these activities. According to the Agreement, SGS Vostok Limited will be acting as the Russian sales and auditing office of SGS-TÜV.
Ralf Grobusch, Head of SGS Systems and Services Certification in Germany: “By obtaining the brand new SGS-TÜV certificate our clients will be able to benefit from both brands and thus gain an additional competitive advantage in certain markets, for example in automotive and metallurgical sectors, where the TÜV-brand historically has a high reputation”.
Konstantin Timoshechkin, Head of Systems and Services Certification at SGS Vostok Limited: “The SGS-TÜV certificate will also be a strong marketing tool in case the organization operates in the German market or has German or European partners. I am convinced that Russian customers will benefit from our new certification solution”.
