Intertek revives the CAPCIS brand, recognising 50 years of expertise in corrosion and materials testing and consulting
September 05, 2023
(Manchester, United Kingdom) Intertek, a leading total quality assurance provider to industries worldwide, announces today the revival of the CAPCIS brand, leveraging its global reputation as a leading authority in corrosion and materials assurance and honoring this specialist team's 50-year legacy that started in 1973 at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).
Acquired by Intertek in 2007, Intertek´s Production and Integrity Assurance business has a long-standing reputation for offering independent third-party testing and consultancy services worldwide to businesses in the energy, transport, aerospace, marine, manufacturing and infrastructure sectors.
Corrosion can cost up to 2-4% of a company's total revenue each year. As energy, utilities and infrastructure assets age, and operate in ever more challenging environments, the need for systemic risk-based corrosion monitoring and materials assurance solutions has never been greater. We are, therefore, proud to launch Intertek CAPCIS, a move which strengthens our position as an industry leading expert providing quality services through a trusted, single-source partnership for every stage of the materials and corrosion lifecycle, from prevention through to failure analysis, helping to reduce uncertainty and risk across a wide range of assets.
In addition to corrosion and materials testing, Intertek CAPCIS delivers in-depth expertise worldwide on integrity management across a wide range of services such as failure investigation and material selection, and production chemistry and oilfield microbiology in primarily upstream oil and gas. With a diverse team of highly specialised experts, and state-of-the-art facilities in the UK, UAE and Malaysia, Intertek´s Production and Integrity Assurance is operating at the forefront of corrosion and materials assurance, helping to ensure the safety and integrity of assets around the world.
Tim Walsh, Intertek CAPCIS Director, said: “Bringing back the CAPCIS brand in our 50th year of operation further reinforces Intertek's reputation in the materials and corrosion industry. As Intertek CAPCIS, we will continue to support our customers, giving them confidence that their assets are safe and meet regulatory requirements, even in the most challenging operating environments. In an everchanging market, our specialist expertise is more important than ever, and we will ensure that Intertek CAPCIS continues to exceed our customers' expectations."
Earlier this year, Intertek CAPCIS expanded its corrosion and materials testing capabilities with an investment in the latest technology, implementing a new suite of Instron Electropuls E10000 electrically actuated load frames. This new equipment complements Intertek CAPCIS' existing testing services by introducing torsional force application and enabling uniaxial (tension or compression) or bend testing of lighter weight, lower strength materials.
Mark Luby, Business Development Manager, added: “This is an important milestone for Intertek CAPCIS and recognises our 50 years of expertise as an independently and globally recognised leader in corrosion and materials testing and consultancy. We are delighted to be uniting our industry-leading experts and state-of-the-art technical infrastructure under the CAPCIS brand and to build on its rich legacy. Intertek CAPCIS is here to help our customers assure the integrity of their assets, for both the existing and future energy and infrastructure landscape."
