Intertek Group plc / Fastech International Ltd

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Intertek Group plc of Fastech International Ltd.

Affected market: Textile testing

No. ME/1417/03

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of Fastech International Ltd by Intertek Group plc does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
