Acquisition highlights Alchemy’s commitment to growing manufacturing focused business
AUSTIN, TEXAS, Alchemy, a global leader in innovative solutions that help manufacturing companies engage with their workforces to drive productivity and safety, announced its rebranding as “Intertek Alchemy” following an acquisition by Intertek Group plc. Joining forces with a leading quality assurance provider bolsters Alchemy’s manufacturing solution and offers substantial expansion opportunities through Intertek’s global manufacturing customer base.
Intertek enables clients from manufacturing and other industries to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in their operations, supply and distribution chains, and quality management systems. The company has a long, successful history in providing assurance to customers that their processes and products are as safe and efficient as possible. But there was one important piece of the production puzzle that was missing — the workforce. By bringing Alchemy into the Intertek family, Intertek’s Total Quality Assurance is indeed total: confirming its customers’ products, processes, and people are safe, efficient, and compliant.
Alchemy has deep experience and a large customer base in the food manufacturing industry. The new Intertek Alchemy will build on this success by establishing a strong presence in the broader manufacturing sector. The company’s courseware library contains hundreds of courses for frontline workers covering topics related to workplace safety, productivity, and human resources. The library is fully customizable, and is complemented by a suite of technology to facilitate reinforcement, engagement, and workforce buy-in to company objectives. Alchemy’s solutions build employee knowledge and confidence to strengthen operations and reduce injuries in industrial environments.
“Being a part of the Intertek family offers our customers tremendous opportunities to take advantage of enhanced services and efficiencies, especially in the manufacturing sector,” said Mike Grigsby, president of Intertek Alchemy. “We’re extremely proud to develop unique training resources for frontline workers and technology-driven tools for supervisors to be more effective. The new Intertek Alchemy is already paying dividends for our client base, as we invest more heavily in product development than ever before in Alchemy’s history.”
Intertek Alchemy’s flagship solution includes award-winning courseware, a learning management system (LMS) tailored to meet the unique challenges of manufacturing, distribution, and food production environments, and mobile apps to facilitate reinforcement and engagement.
