KPA Acquires Environmental Risk Management & Safety, Inc.

New acquisition combined with national footprint strengthens KPA’s role as a leader in EHS risk management.

KPA Services, LLC, a leader in environmental health and safety (EHS) risk management, has announced the acquisition of Environmental Risk Management & Safety, Inc. (ERS). The acquisition closed on March 29, 2018.

Through the merging of two strong client bases and expanding its EHS solutions, this transaction strengthens KPA’s position as the leading provider of EHS risk management services to the automotive market.

KPA is a leader in cloud-based EHS risk management solutions and closed-loop, on-site audit services that proactively mitigate potential accidents and the costly ramifications of non-compliance with state and federal EHS regulations. In addition to EHS, KPA’s comprehensive automotive solution covers operational workflow as well as regulatory risks associated with finance and insurance (F&I) and human capital management (HCM). The company focuses on mid-market companies in automotive, manufacturing, distribution and logistics, and insurance.

ERS provides EHS compliance solutions to clients in multiple industries throughout the nation, with concentration in the southern U.S. Their current services complement KPA and reinforce KPA’s presence in the collision and auto dealer EHS markets.

“This acquisition not only accelerates KPA’s strategy to deepen our showroom to shop compliance expertise in the automotive market, it enhances our efforts in adjacent target markets,” said Vane Clayton, CEO of KPA.
