Tech­no­log­i­cal So­lu­tions Lim­ited: The jour­ney

Jamaica Gleaner - - TECH SOLUTIONS LIMITED -

TECH­NO­LOG­I­CAL SO­LU­TIONS Lim­ited (TSL) be­gan op­er­at­ing in June 1996, and over the past 20 years has built an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion through­out the re­gion for its work in trans­form­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions and com­pa­nies. This ISO 17025 lab­o­ra­tory is a pi­o­neer in food safety and qual­ity sys­tems, and has as­sisted com­pa­nies in deal­ing with the prac­ti­cal re­al­i­ties of com­pet­ing and ex­port­ing in a glob­alised busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment.

Led by Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Dr An­dré Gor­don since its in­cep­tion, TSL of­fers a com­pre­hen­sive range of tech­ni­cal ser­vices to sup­port the pro­duc­tive sec­tor in Ja­maica and the Caribbean. The com­pany pro­vides guid­ance with trade-re­lated tech­ni­cal re­quire­ments and spe­cialises in food safety, qual­ity as­sur­ance and au­dit­ing, pro­duc­tion sys­tems de­sign and im­ple­men­ta­tion, and an ex­ten­sive range of lab­o­ra­tory/an­a­lyt­i­cal For­mer Prime Min­is­ter P.J.

ser­vices. It also pro­vides plant and fa­cil­ity lay­out and de­sign, new prod­uct devel­op­ment, profit im­prove­ment, trou­ble-shoot­ing and tech­ni­cal con­sul­tancy ser­vices. These ser­vices en­sure that Caribbean com­pa­nies in the busi­ness of agri­cul­ture, agro-pro­cess­ing,

food ser­vice, hos­pi­tal­ity, ex­port­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing or dis­tri­bu­tion can ac­cess world-class tech­ni­cal ser­vices that are fo­cused on their spe­cific needs and cir­cum­stances.


Gov­ern­ments, public­sec­tor in­sti­tu­tions and

re­gional and in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions have also ben­e­fited from hav­ing their tech­nol­ogy-based pro­grammes de­vel­oped and im­ple­mented by a com­pany with an en­vi­able track record of projects be­ing de­liv­ered in a man­ner that en­sures sus­tain­abil­ity and global com­pet­i­tive­ness for the ben­e­fi­cia­ries. An­a­lyst Ge­orge Blake con­ducts can seam­ing in the TSL lab in 1996.

Since its in­cep­tion, TSL has con­sis­tently de­liv­ered ef­fi­cient and timely ser­vice to many com­pa­nies within the ex­port sec­tor, sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing the time it takes them to move from the pro­duc­tion of goods to ex­port­ing them.

TSL has been the lead­ing provider for world-class food-safety train­ing, sys­tems im­ple­men­ta­tion and au­dit­ing ser­vices in the Caribbean, and has also worked with clients from the United States of Amer­ica (US), Canada, the Euro­pean Union (EU) and West­ern and South­ern Africa.

The com­pany has the dis­tinc­tion of be­ing the ini­tia­tor of GMP and HACCP to many in­dus­tries in the re­gion dur­ing the mid to

late 1990s, and much more so in the last 15 years. TSL is the only com­pany in the re­gion that has im­ple­mented food-safety sys­tems that have been ap­proved by the reg­u­la­tory au­thor­i­ties in the US and EU, thereby fa­cil­i­tat­ing ex­ports to these mar­kets.

The re­cent ac­qui­si­tion of a wa­ter ac­tiv­ity me­ter has strength­ened our ca­pa­bil­i­ties, and con­tin­ues TSL’s tra­di­tion of pi­o­neer­ing analy­ses in the re­gion, as we are now the only lab­o­ra­tory in Ja­maica and the Caribbean with the abil­ity to de­ter­mine the wa­ter ac­tiv­ity of any prod­uct. TSL also has the abil­ity to do a wide range of other tests on wa­ter and waste wa­ter, and also now does le­gionella test­ing.
