Velosi Group provides inspection, quality assurance, certification and testing services to oil and gas multinationals and operates from worldwide bases as well as the UK.
The company has a team of seven staff including staff inspectors and co-ordinators permanently located at Applus RTD UK Ltd's base at Aberdeen.
Velosi deploys inspection teams on behalf of its clients, including Total, Shell, Repsol, Talisman and Subsea 7, with access to specialists in over 50 countries.
Adrian Payne, Operations Manager for Velosi in Aberdeen, said: "Combining our team with Applus RTD at its base is a very positive move for us, giving us the opportunity to work together to expand our operations across the UKCS and beyond.
"Velosi is now part of Applus' huge global network providing clients with specialist staff and the capability to meet local content laws, and other regional considerations, across complementary core services in asset integrity including NDT, maintenance, rope access, research and development."
Applus Group purchased Velosi earlier in 2011. Applus RTD employs more than 4,000 people in 37 countries and its north-west Europe business unit is centred on two major offices in the UK, at Aberdeen and Falkirk, as well as five further regional sites including Teesside and Great Yarmouth.
