Bureau Veritas India In-house Newsletter For Private Circulation Only Apr - Jun 2013


ear Colleagues,

We continue our growth and investments in India. I am pleased to inform that Bureau Veritas has completed acquisition of Sievert Group at the beginning of Q3 2013. Sievert is a leading provider of Non Destructive Testing (NDT) with presence in India, Middle East and South East Asia.

We have positive development in BV Bangladesh with execution of sizeable contracts from Walmart and C&A for IVS services. I wish to congratulate BV Bangladesh team for this challenging performance.

Our financial results of H1 are short of budget. We need to enhance our market reach and be more customer centric to accelerate the sales growth importantly in some geographies wherein improvement potential is high.

Naresh Gupta Regional Chief Executive, South Asia Region

The second quarter of this year witnessed significant events and achievements such as successful audits of COFRAC and NABCB in Ahmedabad. World Environment Day was celebrated across all the offices in South Asia Region with theme “ THINK-EAT-SAVE” to reduce foodprint and create awareness on foodwaste.
