Press release09/13/2021
Apave, an international group with more than 150 years of experience, specialised in the management of technical, environmental, and human risks, announced today the acquisition of Tecno Piemonte, an Italian company specialising in tests and certification, specifically in the field of civil engineering.

The acquisition of Tecno Piemonte is part of Apave’s 2025 strategic plan which aims to accelerate the Group’s international development through a sustained external growth dynamic. This acquisition will strengthen Apave’s presence in Italy and allow it to position itself in the Infrastructure & Construction sector, a sector in which the Group intends to become a leading player.


Apave and Tecno Piemonte, both recognised players in the growing TIC (Test, Inspection, Certification) market, will combine their experiences, know-how, accreditations, and specific geographic positions to support their clients in the field of construction, whose needs and challenges in terms of risk management are significant. This acquisition will enable Apave to accompany the implementation of the “Infrastructure” recovery plan established by the Italian government.
