TCR Engineering Services, a reputed and independent ISO 17025 certified material testing laboratory, today expanded its boundaries by initiating a joint venture in Kuwait. The new company will be called "TCR ATSCO Laboratory Testing & Inspection Services Company".
Commenting on the joint venture, Mr. V. K. Bafna, Managing Director of TCR Engineering said, "The new company represents a major opportunity for TCR to expand capabilities and capacity in the Middle-East material testing and quality assurance market. There are many synergies to exploit between the services currently offered by TCR Engineering in India and those provided by TCR-ATSCO in Kuwait."
The operations in Kuwait are handled by Mr. Amit Bafna as General Manager. Based in Fahaeel, TCR ATSCO is in the process of getting the necessary approvals from local oil and gas majors. Most of the current projects of TCR ATSCO services including Helium Leak Testing have the approval from Equate.
Mr. Rohit Bafna, Director Global Sales of TCR said, "Our goal at TCR ATSCO will be to bring the 36 year experience of TCR Engineering in India to meet the material testing needs of companies in Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and other parts of Middle-East." Rohit further added, "The independent analytical laboratory market in the Middle-East and South-East Asia is very fragmented with lots of small mom and pop companies, with limited resources, manpower, expertise and capacity for growth. Only companies like TCR and TCR ATSCO have the means and client support to offer a wide range of analytical testing solutions under one roof."
