Düssel­dorf — ARQIS has provi­ded legal advice to the TRIGO Group, an inter­na­tio­nal provi­der of opera­tio­nal quality manage­ment solu­ti­ons for the manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try, on the expan­sion of its busi­ness acti­vi­ties in Germany. TRIGO has acqui­red the busi­ness opera­ti­ons of QSSL Indus­trie­ser­vice GmbH, which opera­tes in the field of quality assu­rance services for the auto­mo­tive indus­try, from its insol­vency admi­nis­tra­tor Ilkin Banan­yarli (PLUTA) as part of a trans­fer­ring reor­ga­niza­tion. Both parties agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price.

QSSL Industrieservice’s services include quality control of parts and compon­ents as well as other indus­trial services such as assem­bly and logi­stics services. The current TRIGO loca­ti­ons in Stutt­gart and Berlin will bene­fit from the acqui­si­tion, and the loca­ti­ons in Fell­bach and Mann­heim gained with the take­over will enable further, deeper market penetration.

TRIGO was foun­ded in 1997. The inter­na­tio­nally active company offers opera­tio­nal and stra­te­gic quality manage­ment solu­ti­ons for the manu­fac­tu­ring sector, espe­ci­ally for the auto­mo­tive and aero­space indus­tries. With a team of more than 10,000 employees working in more than 25 count­ries on four conti­nents, TRIGO offers a compre­hen­sive port­fo­lio of quality assu­rance services ranging from inspec­tion and test­ing to consul­ting and training.

ARQIS alre­ady advi­sed TRIGO Group in 2016 on its market entry into the German market in the context of the acqui­si­tion of “Böllin­ger Qualitätssicherungsgruppe”.
