exida was founded in 1999 by Dr. William Goble and Mr. Rainer Faller who are leading authorities on functional safety and have both written many industry leading books on the subject of functional safety. They recognized that there is a growing need for companies who operate in the safety domain to become more knowledgeable about the requirements for safety related applications. exida has been built upon sound engineering principles in the quest for a safer world. Having originated from two offices, today exida has expanded to numerous regional offices around the world providing expert end user and OEM system consulting, product testing and certification, assessment, cyber security, and alarm management services.
