Bloomingdale, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2015
The VMC Group, a world leader in the design and manufacture of vibration isolation and seismic engineering services, is pleased to announce it has acquired a 51% control stake in Dynamic Certification Laboratories (DCL).
Headquartered in Sparks, Nevada, DCL is a test and measurement company and a leading provider of shake table tests within the HVAC, medical and industrial equipment manufacturing industries. DCL is at the forefront of seismic simulation testing, analysis, reporting and IBC certification of essential equipment in the western region of the U.S.
“Acquiring DCL allows us to expand our engineering services in the test and measurement market by more than 50%, while also facilitating our expansion into the California market,” states John Wilson, Jr., CEO of The VMC Group. “We are thrilled to be working with the distinguished, expert members of the DCL advisory board; Mr. Ahmad Itani, Ph.D., S.E., F.ASCE, Mr. Patrick N. Laplace, Ph.D, and Mr. Gokhan Pekcan, Ph.D., as well as continuing our dynamic relationship with Mr. Joe La Brie, SE, and his current team. DCL has outstanding industry expertise and this acquisition fully represents our commitment to expanding our services to become a prominent industry solutions provider.”
La Brie commented, “When initially considering the sale, I was looking for a company that would 'shake' our industry to its very core. The VMC Group is the only company in the seismic simulation domain that could rattle the status quo and improve the value proposition to our clients across the board."
