Canada-based Corrosion and Abrasion Solutions Ltd (CASL) is to acquire Thermal Spray Industries Ltd (TSI).

 ‘We are very excited to welcome the TSI team to the CASL family of companies,’ said Terry Freeman, CASL board chair. ‘The combination of TSI with our existing Inotec business will make CASL a leader in corrosion solutions technologies and services using metals. The depth of experience and management capability that we have on a combined basis will be second to none in our industry.’

‘With the addition of TSI, CASL now has the broadest suite of corrosion and abrasion resistance solutions available to the industrial sector in western Canada,’ said Michael Hankirk, president of TSI. ‘We look forward to the many synergies this will provide to TSI's and CASL's customers.’

TSI produces a custom blended tungsten carbide overlay for tailings piping applications in the Oil Sands.
