Darlington, UK: Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is pleased to announce it is bringing back Lintec, its prestigious legacy brand in the marine industry. Lintec Testing Services was founded in 1993 in Darlington in the North East of England and was acquired by Intertek in 2005.

The business has been marketed as Intertek ShipCare since 2011 and its service offerings have continually expanded, making it a global marine industry services market leader, supporting the provision of a range of Total Quality Assurance solutions for the global shipping community. This includes expert assistance with IMO 2020 regulations, marine fuel analysis, marine fuel Investigation, bunker quantity surveys, lubricant analysis, water and effluent analysis and firefighting foam testing. In addition, Intertek’s Caleb Brett laboratories and offices across the world handle testing and inspection work on a subcontracted basis from Intertek Lintec.

Returning to the Lintec branding harnesses the industry-leading recognition of this well-known name in the global marketplace and helps to better capture Intertek’s continued innovation within the shipping industry.

Sue Appleyard, Director of Intertek Lintec, said: “For over 25 years the Lintec brand has been synonymous with the provision of high-quality bunker services to the shipping industry, and in recognition of that fact, I am delighted that Intertek ShipCare has re-branded to Intertek Lintec.

“With the IMO 2020 legislation changes now required of our industry and the challenges looking forward, the Intertek Lintec team will continue to passionately support and satisfy the needs of our clients, building on our core values to offer Ever Better technical expertise and assistance from an Intertek global network of over 350 ports worldwide. Today, more than ever, the Intertek Lintec team of subject matter experts is firmly looking forward to channelling the pioneering spirit of the Lintec name and continuing its legacy of delivering innovative, world class Assurance solutions to marine clients for the next 25 years and beyond.”

An emphasis on providing quality fuel testing, bunker quality services, troubleshooting and technical knowledge on a global scale remains a key focus for Intertek Lintec. Fleet managers and suppliers will continue to receive the quickest turnaround times in the market, marked by superior technical knowledge.
