Trescal, the international specialist for calibration services, has acquired Benelux leader Stork Intermes, from Stork Materials Technology (SMT), a material testing group headquartered in Netherland.
Founded in 1972, Stork Intermes specialises in temperature, pressure, electrical, humidity, mechanical and geometrical calibration. The company is based in Antwerp (Belgium) and Hengelo (The Netherlands) and is also active in France and Switzerland. With a turnover of € 13 million and 120 staff, the company has over 3,000 customers cross the aeronautical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries.
The acquisition brings together complementary technical skills; Stork Intermes specialises in non-electrical (e.g. pressure and temperature) services, while Trescal‘s current offering focuses predominantly on electrical fields (e.g. high frequency, data / telecom and fibre optics).
This is Trescal‘s third acquisition (following DTI in the US and Antech Engineering in the UK) since 3i and TCR Capital invested in the company in September 2010, resulting Trescal‘s pro-forma turnover increasing by c30% in 2011.
