Alliance Acquires BV’s Emissions Monitoring Business

11 September 2020

Alliance Holdings, Align Capital Partners’ (ACP) environmental services platform, recently acquired the US-based Emissions Monitoring business unit (EM) of Bureau Veritas (BV). The EM business, which will now be known as Alliance Emissions Monitoring (AEM), provides compliance-driven leak detection and repair (LDAR) services and emissions data management to enable customers throughout North America to meet state and federal regulatory requirements. 

The formation of AEM is an important growth investment for Alliance as the company continues to expand its geographic presence and offer new complementary services to its best-in-class source emissions testing group. 

John Belus, who is joining from BV as AEM’s Chief Operating Officer, said “The partnership with Alliance creates a combination of emissions testing and monitoring services that is unmatched in the industry; together we will leverage technology and service in a way that will enhance compliance and reduce risk for any industry in need of both LDAR and stack testing services.” 

The combination creates a national footprint of 17 offices and over 300 employees with the technical expertise to serve a diverse range of end markets. This acquisition represents Alliance’s fifth add-on since 2015 and its second corporate carve-out of 2020, after acquiring METCO from Eurofins in February of this year.
