Argos Multilingual announced today that it acquired Dublin-based Chillistore, a company that specializes in language quality assurance (LQA) and inclusive localization, in January 2021.
“Chillistore is a very strategic acquisition for Argos,” says Véronique Özkaya, CEO of Argos Multilingual. “We see the need in the market for a holistic approach to quality, and their business goes well beyond standard quality services. The fit with Argos was obvious from the first conversation – our new colleagues at Chillistore are simply exceptional at what they do, and we will grow the business to become the most reputable LQA services company in the industry. We are ready to accomplish great things together!”
“After years of looking for a partner that would allow for Chillistore’s growth in the LQA space, I did not have to think twice before becoming part of Argos,” says Anna Kennedy, Managing Director at Chillistore. “Argos is customer-centric, and they hold their employees and partners in very high regard. Their history shows a track record of impeccable quality management, and we felt that Argos was the perfect fit for Chillistore. Together we plan to expand and continue developing partnerships with clients and talent alike.”
Argos plans to operate Chillistore as a separate and independent subsidiary.
