The Intertek Minerals Division has acquired Transworld Laboratories Ghana Limited (TWL), providing Intertek the technical resources and expertise to provide mineral analytical testing services to mining and exploration companies in West Africa. This testing is carried out in a modern centralised laboratory facility in Tarkwa, Ghana.
John Fowler, Intertek Regional Manager for Minerals Asia, said “This acquisition broadens Intertek’s regional coverage in Africa. The Transworld business complements the Intertek Genalysis facilities in Africa. Our customers will greatly benefit from this additional capability in another strategic location.”
