Veriforce Acquires ComplyWorks Africa – Establishes Operational Hub for Europe, the Middle East and Africa
Safety and compliance management leader expands its global commitment to bring workers home safely and optimize business performance
HOUSTON, Nov. 9, 2021 — Veriforce, the supply chain risk and compliance management industry’s fastest-growing solution provider, today announces the acquisition of South Africa-based ComplyWorks Africa (Pty) Ltd., Africa’s leading supply chain compliance management solution provider in the mining and energy sectors. The acquisition establishes Veriforce’s core operational hub covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Founded in 2011 by Nicolai Massyn and brothers Ben Snyman and TJ Snyman, (SnymanVentures Inc.), ComplyWorks Africa’s integration into EMEA operations not only extends the Veriforce brand into new territories but also strengthens the organization’s global commitment to help companies manage their third-party workforce, navigate complex safety and regulatory environments, and manage business continuity and environmental sustainability risk.
“Our mission to ‘help bring workers home safely’ extends beyond borders and requires a comprehensive approach on a global scale,” said Colby Lane, Veriforce CEO of the combined company. “The success of ComplyWorks Africa helps to bolster our global commitment, and position Veriforce for an even greater expansion of capabilities and world-class service.”
“As companies shift their focus beyond safety and risk management toward sustainability and ESG matters, it’s become increasingly important to provide global support and thought leadership to multinational enterprises,” said Nicolai Massyn, former president of ComplyWorks Africa. “We’re honored to join the Veriforce team and widen the coverage of the industry’s most comprehensive solution for managing supply chain risk.”
Through the acquisition, Veriforce strengthens its global capacity of supporting customers in over 100 countries and 120 languages, and builds on technologies that foster global compliance and emphasis on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) requirements.
