In 2022, the SOCOTEC Group formed its Dutch platform by acquiring three companies that were market leader in their disciplines and all work on a safer and more sustainable built environment:
Inpijn Blokpoel Ingenieurs, founded in 1975, that offers state of the art geotechnical engineering and consultancy services in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom.
Hanselman Group, founded in 1984, that provides risk analyses, risk mitigation measures, structural surveys, monitoring, inspections and loss adjustment to authorities, institutions and companies in construction & infrastructure, real estate, insurance, transport & logistics and renewable energy sectors.
CAG Group, founded in 1997, has experts who provide technical consultancy with regard to air quality. Three years later they developed their water safety practice after the Legionella disaster in Bovenkarspel
They now work together under the name SOCOTEC.
