Ciba expands its global packaging testing services
The newly acquired Lansmont Testing Services by Ciba establishes a leading global consulting and testing services business in the important packaging market.
Pira International, a UK-based provider of Ciba* Expert Services and
supplier of transit and distribution testing and business solutions to
the packaging, paper, printing and publishing industries, has expanded
its global testing services through the acquisition of the US-based Lansmont
Corporation’s Testing Services Group.
Horizontal impact testing, critical when validating the packaging performance
of a variety of shipping containers, is one of the key tests performed
by Pira International and its newest affiliate in the US. See photo at
“Clients will benefit from the increased coverage of US and European markets; this increased geographic coverage is ideal for exporters who need service support and multinationals who need supplier consistency around the globe. This focused transaction provides Pira with the ideal platform to develop and expand our testing services outside of our traditional base in Europe. Having Lansmont’s Testing Services business as part of our team brings great advantages to customers of both organizations and creates opportunities for further profitable growth,” says David Simmonds, Managing Director, Pira International Ltd.
Laboratory distribution testing allows simulation of physical hazards
of the packaging supply chain, including automated handling, vibration,
shock, climatics and compression. See photo at right.
Lansmont’s equipment and instrument business will continue to operate
under Lansmont’s ownership and is not part of this transaction.
