“The Verdantix Green Quadrant report shows how both Sphera and Petrotechnics are already leaders in the field of Operational Risk Management,” said Paul Marushka, Sphera’s president and CEO. “Together we will achieve unprecedented results in helping companies keep their people safe, their products sustainable and their operations productive."Sphera has the most advanced and varied solutions for ORM, and its global customers will benefit from the addition of the Petrotechnics platform and its ORM digital twin offering.

Malavika Tohani, a principal analyst at Verdantix said: “Sphera’s acquisition of Petrotechnics is another move in the union of environmental health and safety risk management with industrial operational risk management. This will provide Sphera with a more comprehensive offering and allow them to gain advantage in the market.”
