International SOS Grows Global Business with Haugaland Acquisition; Arnaud Vaissie Comments

International SOSInternational SOS has acquired Haugaland HMS as part of a strategy to grow its business in the western region of Norway.

The new group formally joined the company’s Kokstad and Stavanger BHT teams on August 1 to provide medical staffing, occupational health and work environment services to clients, International SOS said Thursday.

The latest addition to its Norwegian-based capability puts the total workforce there to 150, although the company said there are plans to begin hiring for new opportunities very soon.

“This acquisition enables us to continue to extend the reach and delivery capability for our clients, as well as offering the global capability of International SOS,” said Arnaud Vaissie, co-founder, chairman and CEO of International SOS.

“We have already seen the evidence of the value this brings, with new clients joining us in Norway and Norwegian clients becoming international clients to the group (since the Kokstad and Stavanger acquisitions in March 2013),” he added.

Roar Storro will lead the new combined group as general manager and Steinar Kobbeltvedt will assume lead roles in client management and business development.
