Trescal Announces International Acquisitions

Trescal, an international specialist in calibration services announces the acquisitions of Gero in Cerquilho (Brazil), MCS Laboratory AG in Lucerne (Switzerland) and Integrated Service Solutions (ISS) near Philadelphia in the USA. These acquisitions will bring an additional turnover of circa 10 million Euros to the group. 

Founded in 1991 in Cerquilho in the state of Sao Paulo, Gero holds the largest number of INMETRO accredited domains in Brazil. The laboratory provides in-house and on-site calibration services to the automotive, energy and electronics industries. It employs 64 people and its technical skills, particularly in acoustics, gas flow and radio frequency, enhance the technical capabilities of Trescal, consolidating its status as the leader in the Brazilian market. With the acquisition of MCS, based near Lucerne, Trescal is strengthening its presence in Switzerland. The group’s technical offering has now been supplemented with new skills in temperature, humidity and pressure. The SAS-accredited laboratory founded in 2006 employs 4 people and specializes in the Life Sciences sector. The two founders, Hans-Rudolf Imhof and Werner Zgraggen, will remain in place to further the development of this entity. The acquisition of ISS enables Trescal to expand its presence to Pennsylvania and to increase its expertise in pipette calibration and gas detection & concentration. It will strengthen the group’s ability to address the Life Sciences sector in the US. ISS was founded in 1988 and employs 51 people. 

These are the 12th, 13th and 14th Trescal  acquisitions since the change of ownership to Omers in April 2018. As an international specialist in calibration the Trescal group provides a broad range of services for the testing and measuring equipment market. Trescal is represented in 22 countries worldwide. Supplementing its standard technical services (verification, calibration and repair of T&M instruments), Trescal provides expertise in the implementation and acquisition of measurement systems, customized equipment pool management software solutions, metrology and technical support.
