TÜV SÜD America Launches Expanded Comprehensive Functional Safety Testing Services

PEABODY, Mass. -- TÜV SÜD America Inc., a premium quality, safety, and sustainability solutions provider that specializes in testing, inspection, auditing, certification, training, and knowledge services, announces the launch of its expanded comprehensive Functional Safety Testing Services.

Every single product poses a variety of risks, ranging broadly from risks to individuals to risks to organizations and the environment. In the modern world of increasing complexity of technology, functional safety is an ever more important issue. For organizations to be successful in the area of functional safety, they must have an integrated approach to it. Hence, to address the growing market needs for enhanced functional safety services, TÜV SÜD America Inc. is launching its expanded comprehensive Functional Safety Testing Services.

“Success in any area of business starts with having the right talent on board, which is why Sven Nowak has relocated from our Singapore offices to lead our Functional Safety efforts for the Americas,” said Jan-Paul van Maaren, Vice President and General Manager, Product Service. Our organization has certified over 3,000 products around the world, making TUV SUD a trusted leader in comprehensive Functional Safety. TÜV SÜD has also trained over 7,000 engineers in the area of Functional Safety.

“Evolving with the market needs is in our DNA,” said John Tesoro, President & CEO of TÜV SÜD America Inc. “Given the complexity of product development in this new world of connected devices, we make it our mission to be available to our clients from an earlier stage of product development so that they conduct ongoing functional safety testing. This helps curtail our clients’ product development cycle, which is critical to their ongoing success. We heard the feedback from our customers and responded with expanding our Functional Safety Testing Services to help our clients mitigate risk in a holistic manner,” stated John Tesoro.
