Italian testing specialist CONTROLS is expands its business
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Italian firm Controls is expanding its operations with the acquisition of Australian firm IPC Global. The Australian firm offers advanced material testing technologies for asphalt, soil and unbound materials and this deal will both strengthen the international profile of Controls by adding the Australian facilities but will also further develop its portfolio of solutions. IPC Global will continue to be run as an autonomous operation according to Controls as this will allow the Australian company to capitalise on its existing distribution network. But the move will allow IPC Global to develop its position through further investment in research and development, with the benefit of industrial and financial support from the parent Controls Group.
