DISA Global Solutions continues to expand its geographic reach, expertise, and depth of services through strategic acquisitions. Effective December 3, 2018, DISA has acquired International Drug Detection, LLC (IDD). This transaction advances our mobile and onsite collection capabilities and bolsters our coverage along the Gulf Coast and throughout the Gulf of Mexico.
IDD was founded in 1997 and is located in Harahan, Louisiana, part of the greater New Orleans metropolitan area. IDD provides a variety of services including collections for drug and alcohol testing (DOT & NON-DOT), program management, corporate consulting, and drug awareness training. They also have a team of certified collectors and a state-of-the-art mobile unit, which contains four complete collection stations, two bathrooms, and reception area along with satellite communication.
John Peterson, DISA’S CEO stated, “This acquisition is complementary to DISA’s core competencies and further enhances our ability to directly and compliantly provide all services throughout the supply chain. IDD serves similar end-markets and understands the criticality of maintaining sample integrity, confidentiality, and chain of custody that exceed industry standards. We welcome the experienced team at IDD and look forward to serving our collective customers.”
IDD President & CEO, Edward V. Lepre, C-SAPA, states, “I’m very excited about the new opportunities for the team at IDD and our customers as a result of this acquisition. Over the past 20 years, DISA has been a formidable competitor of ours, and we’re excited to join this fast growing and well-respected industry leader. Together, I know our customers will continue to receive best-in-class service, and now an even more comprehensive service offering. My team and I are truly excited for what the future holds!”
