Nordic Capital has completed the acquisition of Consilium Marine & Safety Group, a world-leading producer of safety technologies for the marine, oil and gas, transport and building sectors. Under its new brand, Consilium Safety Group, the company plans for a growth journey driven forward by intensified innovation to create even more customer value.
Taking safety to a new level
Consilium Safety Group combines international safety expertise with intelligent detection technology. The result is systems that protect people, material values and the environment.
“Our ambition is to create safety products and solutions that lift safety to a totally different level compared to just a few years ago,” says Nicklas Bergström, CEO at Consilium Safety Group. “We aim at saving more lives and reducing the amount of lost material. With a long list of potential innovations, all driven by needs and in-depth discussions with customers, I think that the future looks bright.”
With pioneering work in fire and gas detection development, and large investments already taken in creating a common platform for all technology, Consilium Safety Group is ready to gear up innovation even more. New detection technologies combined with machine learning and the internet of things (IoT) open up for new possibilities.
Early detection of potential danger is crucial to avoid accidents that lead to devastating losses. The vision of Consilium Safety Group is to provide total safety in every situation – even at large scale and complex technical environments.
“We want everyone on ships, platforms, trains and in buildings to be and feel safe,” says Nicklas Bergström, CEO at Consilium Safety Group. “It is both about the actual level of safety and the perceived level of safety. You need to take the right actions as early as possible and avoid emergencies.”
