Trescal Acquires Stork Intermes

AMSTERDAM and PARIS-Trescal, the international calibration services company, continues its geographic expansion with the acquisition of Benelux leader Stork Intermes, from Stork Materials Technology (SMT), a material testing group headquartered in Netherland.

Founded in 1972, Stork Intermes specializes 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.

The acquisition brings together complementary technical skills; Stork Intermes specializes 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 United Kingdom) since 3i and TCR Capital invested in the company in September 2010, allowing Trescal‘s pro-forma turnover to increase by c30% in 2011.
