The move affords the company increased leverage in the industry while allowing DFS to move forward in support of its mission to deliver audit and vehicle inspection solutions on a greater scale through its international network of over 500 field specialists. Acquired by DFS in July 2006, Manders Appraisal and Groupe Quadrex provide unparalleled audit and vehicle inspection services throughout Canada to over 40 clients.
“The strategic decision to integrate Manders and Quadrex into DataScan Field Services allows us to leverage our experience and technology to continue producing the exceptional results our clients expect,” said Brent Sergot, vice president and general manager, DataScan Field Services. “Over the past year, we have experienced synergistic growth in Canada by adding floorplan audits and certified inspection services to our offerings. The timing is right to roll out the final touches on the integration and the branding was one of the last steps.”
According to Sergot, the integration has also created a more robust organization. “DFS is now positioned to better serve its Canadian clients utilizing a common technology platform in both the US and Canada. Our international team of knowledgeable associates continues to come together in support of building the most effective audit and inspection company in the industry,” said Sergot.
