Cooper Research Technology (CRT) has entered into a working agreement with the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the Nottingham Transport Engineering Centre (NTEC) at the University of Nottingham. The organizations collectively signed a Memorandum of Understanding to formally establish the relationship. The three organizations will coordinate resources and cooperate actively in projects involving the supply of laboratory equipment, laboratory testing and related consultancy services.
The alliance will strengthen CRT's ability to fulfill global demand for the supply of equipment, consultancy and research based projects. It will also help to avoid duplication of effort and increase speed of implementation of processes used by civil engineering, research and applied pavement construction service providers. The goal of working together is to improve the overall performance of the global supply chain within the civil engineering and research industry, both public and private.
"This alliance will strengthen the mission of Cooper Research Technology to expand our market share in the global asphalt testing market by producing, supplying and supporting high quality testing equipment throughout the world," said Andrew Cooper.
