VPI Announces the Acquisition of the Utah EMC Operations of Nemko-CCL
December 23, 2015
VPI Technology Group announces the acquisition of the Utah-based EMC operations of Communication Certification Laboratory (Nemko-CCL). EMC services that were provided by Nemko-CCL will continue to be provided under a newly launched division of VPI called VPI Laboratories. The EMC services offered by Nemko-CCL will continue to be provided without interruption under VPI.
Services offered include emissions testing, immunity testing, intentional and unintentional radiated emission testing, regulatory certifications including FCC and CE marking, and safety certifications through a partnership with Nemko USA.
With this acquisition, VPI will bring on key members of the Nemko-CCL team to manage the transition. Commenting on this acquisition, VPI’s CEO, Morgan Taylor, said “This is a great opportunity for VPI to join forces with a company that has a solid reputation of providing excellent testing and certification services for many years. With the addition of Nemko-CCL’s EMC testing capabilities, VPI continues to strengthen its position in providing a full suite of technical services from product design into manufacturing, including regulatory testing and certification.”
Through VPI Laboratories, a subsidiary of VPI Technology Group, EMC testing services will continue to be offered at the Wanship testing facility that has been operated by Nemko-CCL since 1971 as well as at a new VPI facility that will offer testing services in the Salt Lake Valley. Details of the new location will be announced at a later date.
Gary Olsen, Vice President of Business Development, added “VPI is excited to welcome the new team members and incorporate additional testing capabilities into VPI’s portfolio of quality technical solutions. This acquisition is a perfect fit with VPI’s mission of supporting customers from ‘Visions to Reality’.”
Existing Nemko-CCL customers can expect a seamless transition to the new VPI division.
CCL was founded in 1971, and acquired by Nemko in 2009, and has been providing testing and regulatory certification services for the last 45 years. VPI has been in business since 1995. VPI's beginnings were founded in cooperation with the Center for Self Organizing Intelligent Systems at Utah State University.
As an additional service for VPI to offer to both its existing engineering and manufacturing customers as well to current Nemko-CCL customers, VPI has established a close partnership with Nemko and will continue to work with Nemko’s world class engineering team to support our customers with a complete range of testing and compliance activities including certifications for global market access, safety certification, FCC/TCB certification, and a range of other specialized testing.
