Working with R-TECH

Tufcot have been partnering with R-TECH Materials since May 2015. This has included a range of projects from approval testing for Lloyd’s Register to quality control testing of bearing batches. R-TECH has worked closely with Tufcot to ensure that testing programs met our requirements, with regular feedback and technical advice along the way.

Working with R-TECH has been greatly beneficial to our testing and development programs.

Not only do we get the accurate and reliable data that we need, but the service the R-Tech team provides is personable, responsive and affordable too.
