By: Koen Backer
Control Union Industrial Inspections is pleased to announce they have recently welcomed International Test Solutions (and Struqs Group) into the Control Union group of companies.

The formal documents closing the deal were signed in November by the companies’ directors:

Ron Winands (Managing Director of Control Union Industrial Inspections), Rudy Wilhelm
(Managing Director ITS) and Steef de Kievit (Operations Director ITS).

Ron Winands, Managing Director of Control Union Industrial Inspections, comments: "We have been working with ITS for several years and we saw a good fit with our Control Union values and vision. After a number of successful projects, we decided we were ready for the next step and welcomed ITS into the Control Union group of companies. ITS has an excellent track record in research and development and considerable technical expertise on Advanced NDT and Structural Steel Assessments. Combined with the global network of Control Union, we will be able to offer our customers extensive coverage around the world".

Rudy Wilhelm further explains: "Both ITS and Control Union are solution driven and client focused. As we are now part of Control Union, we will be able to further increase our mutual aim to solve our clients’ technical challenges. In addition, the enhanced global coverage will also enable our current clients to be served on a global scale and enable us to approach new markets."

The new arrangement has already led to a major job, offering various NDT services to one of ITS clients making use of Control Union’s DNV-GL NDT approval. We are confident more exciting opportunities are ahead.
