Bollate, September 14, 2016 – A 50% increase in turnover, investments to 36 million euros, also extending to engineering activities the scope of services provided: these are the main goals of the IMQ Group for the three-year period 2017-2019, that have been announced in the presentation both of the Group Holding Company (the IMQ Group) and the new logo characterizing the Group companies.

 

The IMQ Group is a solid reality that has now a turnover of 102 million euros (following an increase of +10.5% compared with the previous year), and that over the last years has always shown a positive trend constantly developing.

 

700 employees, 21,000 m2 of laboratories and more than 200,000 m2 of other test areas, 140,000 certified products and 18,000 companies. International branches in Spain, Poland, Turkey, China and UAE.

Its activity is mainly based on certification, testing and inspections services, making the IMQ Group the first Italian body in product certification, the first Italian body issuing the European label ENEC (the mark for the lighting and household appliances industry), and the first Italian body issuing CB certificates (international certificates for manufacturers who export their products world-wide), as well as the third body in Italy as per the certification of management systems.

 

A reality born in 1951 - as “Istituto Italiano del Marchio di Qualità” - that grew over the years through the acquisition and then the incorporation of several certification companies and testing laboratories, specialized in a different product range, and that nowadays allow IMQ to be recognized as a center of excellence in various sectors, such as automotive, food, fire reactions, ATP and electricity.

 

The targets for the three-year period 2017-2019 will be pursued investing over 36 million euros in facilities and new acquisitions, particularly in engineering companies.

The logo of the IMQ Group and the Group companies

The new logo of the IMQ Group arises from a question: what do you think of when you say “give safety”? You think of a concrete gesture, universal like a hug giving safety to what you love, but which also becomes a protection to what is worth. That’s why a hug, revealed as a stick figure, has been chosen as the symbol of the IMQ Group and its companies, which stand alongside industries supporting them in their paths, looking to the future and to new ideas driving innovation and progress, up to new opportunities. Together, pursuing a path towards excellence, as the payoff of the logotype clearly underlines: Together Toward Excellence.
