Headquartered in Chicago, USA, VelocityEHS is a global EHS solutions provider with deep competency in chemicals compliance management and a breadth of turnkey, cloud-based modules across EHS information management. In late-2017, CVC’s Growth Fund entered into an agreement with Actua Corporation to purchase VelocityEHS at a Verdantix-estimated value of $290 million, making it one of the largest market transactions in 2017.
