Eurofins Digital Testing provides test tools, test services and training to validate software, digital media services, IoT devices, and content. It is part of the larger Eurofins Group, a leading provider of multi-industry analytical services, with an international network of more than 400 laboratories across 42 countries, over 35,000 employees, and sales of over 2.54 billion euros (approx. 2.98 billion dollars) in 2016, with a 4 billion euros (approx. 4.9 billion dollars) revenue objective by 2019.
Edge Testing delivers a broad range of managed testing services to clients across the telecommunications and media, financial services, utilities, retail, and public sectors. This includes managed, functional, performance and automated testing, undertaken both onsite and remotely from Edge Testing’s Glasgow and Birmingham based Digital Test Hubs.

As part of the acquisition, Eurofins Digital Testing will retain Edge Testing’s team of more than 250 people, and gain additional test labs in Glasgow, Scotland and Birmingham, England.
