DISA Global Solutions, Inc. is a provider of technology-enabled workplace safety and compliance solutions. DISA focuses on certifying employees in safety-sensitive and labor-intensive industries, in addition to helping companies globally in making more informed staffing decisions. In 2014, DISA was acquired by a New York–based private equity fund who retained Harvey & Company to assist in expanding DISA’s service offerings and market reach through an acquisition strategy. To date, Harvey has initiated 21 add-on acquisitions that have broadened DISA’s end-markets while adding scale to existing service offerings allowing DISA to capture more market share. Harvey & Company continues to assist DISA in its industry consolidation strategy across numerous fronts:
- Market diversification: Target acquisitions that help DISA expand into other non-energy, safety-sensitive and labor-intensive markets including transportation, utilities, mining, construction and healthcare.
- Expanding service capabilities: Focus on acquisitions that add complementary services so DISA can offer a more comprehensive suite of services to their existing customers.
- Increasing market share: Acquire companies that are performing similar services to expand market share and build out a broader geographic footprint.
Through its numerous acquisitions, DISA has established itself as a leading provider of workplace safety and compliance services. The 21 acquisitions initiated by Harvey & Company helped diversify DISA’s energy-focused service offerings to become a major player in the transportation compliance market. These acquisitions also expanded DISA’s capabilities and geographic footprint, strengthened their presence in new and existing end-markets, and established new customer relationships.
