EHS Acquisitions

Growth in EHS Services and Solutions

EORM logo

In response to the changing market focus and increased demand in environmental, health, and safety services, in 2015, BSI expanded its portfolio of customer-centric services through the acquisition of the US consultancy, Environmental and Occupational Risk Management, Inc. (EORM). EORM brings BSI clients greater access to proven technical expertise and sector specialization with concentrations in technology, construction, healthcare, and energy. The acquisition increased our US footprint with the addition of 6 offices across the west and launched BSI’s latest division: EHS Solutions and Services.

Howard Kerr, Chief Executive at BSI, stated: “Both EORM and BSI have complementary values, expertise and services that help unlock excellence for our clients. Uniting EORM’s world class team and technical expertise with the internationally recognized BSI brand and global network accelerates us towards this goal.”

With the acquisition, EORM’s senior management team joined BSI, with its Founder and CEO, Glenn Fishler, leading BSI’s EHS Solutions and Services’ future efforts.

In June 2015, Texas-based Hill Country Environmental, Inc. was acquired, further augmenting the expertise BSI can provide its clients. Hill Country’s full range of environmental consulting and engineering services can help clients address complex air quality, waste water and hazardous waste permitting, and environmental regulatory compliance issues.

Founded in 1992, Hill Country Environmental brings engineers, geologists, and environmental scientists with regulatory agency, consulting, and industry backgrounds to the BSI family, and allows BSI EHS Solutions and Services to serve clients in the energy, oil and gas, mining, chemical, marine, healthcare, municipal, and technology sectors.

Continuing its focus to provide clients with an extensive range of EHS professional services, BSI brought in Atrium Environmental Health and Safety Services, LLC from Reston, Virginia. Atrium brings a broad set of on-site and project-based occupational safety, industrial hygiene, and environmental compliance services to clients, enhancing BSI’s offering in the pharmaceutical, facilities management, government, and shipbuilding sectors.

To increase its access to clients in the key market areas of New York City and the East Coast and maximize its expertise in the construction and built environments, BSI acquired one of New York City’s most respected and renowned EHS consulting firms, Creative Environment Solutions (CES) Corp.

With over 100 employees, the acquisition of CES significantly bolstered BSI’s EHS consulting business footprint and brought in experts in environmental consulting, building code compliance, building safety inspections, environmental sampling and analysis, and site safety services, as well as training in EHS compliance and certification.

In December 2016, BSI acquired Quantum Management Group, Inc. to complement the EHS Solutions and Services division. The acquisition of Quantum adds important corporate environmental liability management 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 to the Midwest.

Over the past decade BSI has grown our client base organically, increased our global footprint, and expanded our portfolio offering to match today’s business needs. BSI EHS Solutions and Services’ acquisitions reinforce our commitment to our overall approach of encouraging Organizational Resilience across our clients.
