Kiwa interested in merging with Intega
Kiwa, the international Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) company with a strong home base in Europe, showed interest in acquiring Intega Group by a delisting from the ASX around the end of 2021.
Dutch headquartered Kiwa, established in 1948 and operating in drinking water sanitation, building, construction and infrastructure since then, intends to expand its infrastructure services by this merger. Kiwa CEO Paul Hesselink: “We are bidding as Intega’s activities and markets make a perfect fit with Kiwa’s aim to extend and expand its building and construction services from Europe, like in the Netherlands, Germany and UK, to Australia and USA. Intega’s own growth plans align very well just like culture and drive”.
The transaction remains subject to a number of customary conditions, including Intega shareholder approval and regulatory approval.
