Global solutions provider Intertek has signed a new strategic partnership in the UAE with SREC Laboratory as the firm looks to enhance local services for low-voltage switchgear assemblies and transformers manufacturers
Through the partnership, Intertek has expanded its services in Middle East, as it looks to help electrical equipment testing for switchgear assemblies and transformers manufacturers in the region get their equipment to market faster through ASTA validation.
Abu Dhabi-based SREC Laboratory, which can boast of a long history of supplying electrical transmission and distribution equipment to the Middle East, joined Intertek’s global network in November 2013 as part of the company’s Recognized Testing Laboratory (RTL) programme.
SREC Laboratory Managing Director Mohan Joseph Cheeran said, "Regional demand for such services are growing and SREC is pleased to enter into a partnership with Intertek to provide test services to regional clientele. The services will be enhanced to cover more tests in near future."
Rich Adams, Senior Vice President of Intertek’s Electrical Global Business Line added, "With our presence in Abu Dhabi, Intertek not only supports demand for quality electrical transmission and distribution equipment in the region, but also now offers the industry’s farthest-reaching network of type testing laboratories located in major LV and MV equipment markets.
"This partnership has enhanced testing and certification services offered locally to Abu Dhabi and Middle East manufacturers through SREC Laboratory, and the steady growth of Intertek's extensive network of laboratories demonstrates the market's on-going trust in our in-depth industry knowledge combined with local understanding and insight."
SREC Laboratory was founded in 1994, becoming one of the Middle East's first test houses to evaluate regional and global requirements for safety testing services.
The company's services include the safety testing of switchgear assemblies, transformers and pre-fabricated substations for conducting temperature rise test up-to 3000A.
