DEKRA North America on Aug 4, 2016 11:14:52 AM

DEKRA is expanding its Business Assurance service unit in North America with the purchase of AQS Management Systems Inc. based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. AQS is the leading provider of management system training courses in the United States and will be a valued addition to DEKRA’s services for safeguarding and improving business processes.

Founded by Mark Ames over 27 years ago, AQS offers training services focusing on organizational improvement and implementation of international management system standards including the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) family of standards for Quality Management, Environmental Management, Occupational Health/Safety, Energy Management, Food Safety, and many other management systems. Auditors, implementers, and other stakeholders benefit from AQS’s technical and industry expertise to understand and successfully apply the requirements of each management system standard. With around 4,200 training participants in 2015, AQS is the leading provider in the USA for public and onsite training. AQS also offers computer-assisted learning options for both auditors and management teams.

AQS customers are from aviation, automotive and medical industries as well as the public sector. Their portfolio is comprised of 27 certified training courses for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 13485, AS9100, TS 16949, and integrated management systems as well as 40 non-certified courses for organizational improvement guided by ISO standards.

“With this addition, we are significantly expanding our range of training courses and certifications in North America and thus complementing our activities in the areas of occupational safety and process safety,” says Lothar Weihofen, head of DEKRA’s global Business Assurance business unit. “We expect to see growing demand for training courses in the years ahead, particularly due to a large number of revisions to management systems standards.”

Mark Ames, President of AQS, comments, “By joining the global team of experts at DEKRA, we now have the opportunity to expand and enhance the services our highly-qualified trainers offer to our customers while forging new paths internationally.”
