- Trescal continues its acquisition strategy. Following the announcement of the acquisitions of the Malaysian Pyrometro Services on October 31 and the French A + Métrologie on November 2, the French metrology services group announced today the acquisition of the Brazilian company Teclabor.
- Teclabor is a metrology laboratory based in Recife, Brazil.
- This ninth acquisition since the beginning of the year has been carried out, as usual, with the support of the investment company Ardian, majority shareholder of Trescal.
- This is the 25th acquisition since the acquisition of Trescal by Ardian in July 2013.
Teclabor is the third Brazilian acquisition of Trescal. In December 2015, the French group took over the company MEC Q accredited in seventeen areas and which has five laboratories located in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and Bahia.
In November 2016, it was the turn of Metrosul, located in Porto Alègre, to integrate the French metrology group.
Founded in 1985, Teclabor is an accredited laboratory with expertise in liquid flowmetering, and volume, mass (balance), temperature and humidity measurements.
Teclabor, which employs 30 people and has a turnover of 3.3 million Brazilian reais (approximately € 1 million), is active in the food sector.
With this third acquisition “o país do futebol”, Trescal has a workforce of 270 employees in Brazil operating in 8 accredited laboratories located in Recife, Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Sao Paulo, Taubaté, Sorocaba and Porto Alegre, and 12 accredited mobile laboratories. Which, according to Guillaume Caroit, deputy chief executive of the Trescal group, “confirms our position as undisputed leader of the Brazilian metrology market”.
