On May 31st, AmSpec announced the acquisition of CR Cox Pty Ltd., the largest independent marine surveying and inspection company in Australia.

“This acquisition of CR Cox Pty Ltd. by AmSpec is another step forward in executing our business plan of becoming a full service provider in the testing, inspection and certification industry. CR Cox brings a wealth of experience in the marine and cargo surveying industry and is a natural addition to the acquisition of the Petrospection business in 2016,” commented Matt Corr, AmSpec Chief Executive Officer.
