Based in Michigan, TQC USA will offer customers “everything TQC [Europe] offers and a little bit more,” says owner Joel Bialek.

The launch brings TQC’s entire product line to North America, to ease transactions and speed delivery for customers in North America and parts of South America, the company says. Technical information and support will be provided through www.tqc-usa.com.

“People are going to have the ease of just calling up and ordering what they need,” said Bialek. “They don’t have to worry about exchange rates or overseas shipping.”

About the Company

Founded in 1977, TQC started with supplying test methods and instruments for thermal applications in general industry. Eventually, the company came to specialize in quality control equipment for the surface finishing and protective coating industry.

The company’s product range includes a broad line of test equipment and measuring instruments geared toward coating and finishing applications.

“Our goal is to find or create and offer solutions for every possible QC application in the paint and coatings industry,” the company said.
