EcamRicert operates in the analysis, certification and laboratory testing sector, and was established by the merger of Ecam and Ricert. The Ecam laboratory was founded over 30 years ago for the monitoring of drinking and mineral water, with the aim of dealing with the problems linked to the purifying of industrial and domestic water. The laboratory seen extended its operations to waste disposal analyses, monitoring of air quality and emissions and chemical and bacteriological testing.
Ricert was founded in 1998 with the aim of monitoring the quality of bricks, raw materials and finished products in construction materials. In the years that followed, the company expanded, bringing on board new expertise in the sectors of reinforced concrete and steel and classical and road geotechnology. In 2011 Ecam purchased the Ricert laboratory and merged the two activities, with the aims and aspirations they shared, under the name of EcamRicert.
In 2017, two new spin-offs – Ecsin and Lann – joined the EcamRicert family. EcamRicert today provides highly professional, specialised services to customers, with a view to boosting the growth of the companies, with respect for the environment, people and the society of today and tomorrow. With an approach that cuts across various areas, EcamRicert supports customers in tackling the challenges innovation brings with it daily.
