Shield Group, Inspecta and Kiwa belong to one group of companies. As of 2017 we will work under one corporate brand - Kiwa. Shield Group International rebrands to Kiwa Compliance International.
Globally present, regionally close
The main reason for Shield Group to rebrand to Kiwa is to enhance unity and the extended opportunities, which come along with sharing one identity.
Under the Kiwa flag, we are able to present clients an even more comprehensive one-stop shop of services. Providing a wide range of specialized services in the fields of certification, testing, inspection, consultancy, training and data services. Within Kiwa, we can easily bundle and exchange our expertise throughout the world, thanks to our international presence in almost 40 countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
CEO Hans van der Wart (l) and Operational Director Frank-Maarten Gribnau (r) raising the Kiwa flag at our Rotterdam headquarters.
Kiwa Compliance will continue specialising in Risk and Compliance Management. We are proud that so many clients rely on us in keeping their surroundings healthy and safe. And we assure you that we will continue to work as always: proactive, highly qualified, pragmatic and client driven.
Added value into practice
In the last years, many projects have proven the added value of working closely together for the client’s benefits. Varying from maritime inspections to integral safety scans for housing corporations.
United under the Kiwa beaver
During the rebranding, you will see the Kiwa beaver popping up, which has become a well-known quality mark. This friendly animal expresses our core values very well. For one reason, the beaver will only be found in a healthy, natural and sustainable environment, which is exactly what we provide many services for. The animal’s efficiency, technical and cooperation skills also set it apart, which we see as part of our added value as well. All in all, our mascot stands for steady, inventive, reliable, engaged and hard-working.
Rebranding process at Shield Group
Our rebranding takes place in phases. At the beginning of 2017 Shield Group and our survey and consultancy companies will rebrand. Our accredited laboratories will follow later. The operation will be completed before the end of 2017.
We'll present our new identity in more detail in the coming months.
