Paris, July 4th, 2019.

Trescal, the international specialist in calibration services, is taking a new step in its geographical expansion in Brazil with the acquisition of Setting and Instituto Amazonense de Metrologia (IAM).

Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Sao Paulo, with accredited laboratories in Sao Paulo city and Manaus, Setting also delivers Inmetro Accredited Proficiency Tests and Certified Reference Materials (PH & Conductivity).

Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Manaus, IAM is a single source provider of calibration services. Thanks to it’s unique set of Inmetro accredited skills in Manaus, IAM is the suitable entity to become Trescal Amazonas.

Trescal operates now twelve accredited laboratories in nine Brazilian States, located in Porto Alegre, Curitiba, Cerquilho, Sao Paulo, Santo Andre, Taubate, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Vitoria, Salvador de Bahia, Recife and Manaus. Furthermore, the company also operates two different kinds of mobile accredited calibration laboratories, according to customer needs.

Guillaume Caroit, Trescal Deputy CEO, said: “These acquisitions confirm our strategy to become a major actor in South American Calibration Marketplace.”

These are the 16th and 17th acquisition since the change of ownership to Omers in April 2018.
