Bureau Veritas acquires Sciro SpA

10/04/08

On April 8, 2008, Bureau Veritas Italy completed the acquisition of Sciro SpA.
 
Established in 1987, Sciro is a leading company in the Italian and international railway certification market, with a deep knowledge in the guided transport field.

 

Sciro is a Notified Body for Interoperability Certification of components and Sub-systems of High Speed and Conventional European Railway Systems, in particular for the following Technical Specification for Interoperability (Rolling Stock, Control Command Signalling, Energy, Infrastructure, Maintenance). 

 

Sciro covers more than two-thirds of the Italian market and in the last 5 years its activity and human resources have been multiplied by 5.

 

In 2007, with 19 employees, based in Genoa and Rome, the turnover of Sciro reached 2.9 million euros. Some of the major references of Sciro are the safety certification and the CE marking of Sotto Sistema di Terra (SST) and of Alta Velocità for railroad lines Torino-Novara and Roma-Napoli.

 

With the acquisition of Sciro, Bureau Veritas strengthens its presence in the transport sector, which is remarkably growing. Railway transport, both for freight and for passengers has become a priority issue not only in Italy, but throughout Europe. Notions like interoperability, intermodality and sustainable transport have been topics of the political agenda for long. Bureau Veritas is able to supply its clients with new services and related skills with the perspective of further developments, thanks to the support of new professionals.
