WESTFORD, MA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Verocel, Inc. (www.verocel.com), an independent software verification company serving the global safety-critical software industry, announced today that it has incorporated a new subsidiary, Verocel Limited, based in Trowbridge, UK, to pursue business opportunities in the aerospace, railway, medical, and process industry sectors in the UK. Industry veteran Dewi Daniels has been named managing director of Verocel Limited.

The new subsidiary extends the company's physical presence in the expanding European market for safety-critical software verification services and products. Verocel Limited joins Verocel GmbH, based in Karlsruhe, Germany and established in 2005; and Verocel Sp.z.o.o. in Poznan, Poland, established in 2002. Verocel, Inc., headquartered here, was established in 1999.

Verocel enjoys a leadership position in the software industry where safety-critical applications must comply with rigorous standards and certification objectives. The company is active in such areas as airborne systems and equipment using DO-178B, process control using IEC 61508 (a functional safety standard applicable to multiple industries), automotive using ISO 26262, UAS (unmanned aircraft systems), and MILS (multiple independent levels of security).

"We have seen increasing demand in the UK for services and products in the safety-critical software verification field; and are better positioned to capitalize on these opportunities now with a physical presence in that country," said George Romanski, president and CEO of Verocel, Inc. "I have known Dewi Daniels for many years, and am confident that his experience, expertise, and leadership will ensure the success of our operations in the UK."

"I am proud to be bringing a company of Verocel's caliber to the UK market," Daniels said. "I look forward to sustained growth in the safety-critical and security domains." Daniels has specialized in high-integrity software development and verification throughout his 29-year career. He has been involved in safety-critical avionic software development and verification since 1990, and is registered by the Engineering Council as a Chartered Engineer and by FEANI as a European Engineer. Along with George Romanski and Jim Chelini, Verocel's chief operating officer, he is an active member of SC-205/WG-71, the committee that is preparing DO-178C.
