ACTS has entered a partnership with India's Duocrete.

Mena-based testing, inspection, and certification firm Advanced Construction Technology Services (ACTS) has tied up with Duocrete Engineering Services in Pune, India in a “strategic partnership” to scale up its operations in the Asian country.

Commenting on the development, ACTS chairman, Khaled Awad, said: “Our partnership with Duocrete underlines our commitment to play an active role in the growing Indian Infrastructure and real estate sectors.

"The experience that ACTS has gained over the last two decades will help introduce distinct value added services while ensuring optimal cost and extended durability to the numerous capital projects in India.”

Managing director of Duocrete Ujwal Kunte, added: “The deal also presents new opportunities to expand with a dynamic and modern service structure and a range of new and specialised knowledge-based testing service in the Indian subcontinent.”

While Awad added that the partnership would allow ACTS to rotate its personnel between the Middle East and India, Kunte said it would also enhance Duocrete’s footprint in the region, "with the setup of laboratories in all metro cities and on large infrastructure projects including highways, railways, and airports”.
