As a long-term supplier partner of Airbus, Trescal has opened a greenfield calibration laboratory in Mobile, Ala., near the new Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility.
Calibration services are based on technical skills, but also on providing local service that ensures responsiveness and flexibility. This new 250m² calibration laboratory will perform accredited calibrations services for measuring instruments in the dimensional, torque, temperature and electrical parameters.
Three qualified technicians were hired at the opening of the new lab, but this number is expected to double in the coming months.
The lab reinforces the already established network managed by the group's subsidiary, Trescal Inc., which comprises 11 laboratories and employs 300 people. It will service Airbus as well as other industries in the area.
“Trescal is honored to be selected by Airbus to be their exclusive preferred calibration services provider at the new Airbus manufacturing facility in Mobile, Alabama. Following a successful European partnership, Trescal has now been awarded the opportunity to continue that in the USA. Our new laboratory will enable us to expand our operations into Mobile and further strengthen our positioning in the Southern Region. We are excited to be able to offer our customers in Mississippi, Florida, and Alabama local service and support. We have been very fortunate to find a strong pool of qualified skilled work force in the region,” says Lonnie Spires, general manager, Trescal Inc.
“Trescal is proud to be the calibration partner for Airbus activities in France, United-Kingdom, Germany and now the United States. We pursue our strategy which consists in servicing our key customers wherever they are located,” adds Olivier Delrieu, CEO, Trescal Group.
