Part IV: 2011 - today
Strong roots and a mission that has not changed since 1866 “to protect people and the environment from technology-related risks” will continue to form the basis for TÜV SÜD as a trusted partner of choice for safety, security and sustainability solutions in a physical and digital world.
With the number of employees growing steadily, by the spring of 2015, TÜV SÜD has more employees abroad than in Germany.
This trend confirms customers’ trust in the company and it is also the product of about 150 years of diligent and dedicated work by TÜV SÜD employees and their many predecessors.
In 2016, TÜV SÜD expanded its footprint in Spain with the acquisition of ATISAE and launched 2 Digital Service Centres of Excellence in Singapore and Germany.
In 2012, the Company established TÜV SÜD Sec-IT - through the acquisition of Acertigo AG - to expand its already successful services related to e-commerce, data protection and penetration tests.
“Data security will be one of the key growth sectors of our company over the next years,” emphasised Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stepken in a statement given during TÜV SÜD’s 2012 annual press conference.
With this, TÜV SÜD began setting its sights on developing new solutions to support companies in the 4th technological revolution.
