Gulf Lloyds(GL): A World-Class Inspection & Certification Services Providing Company

The inspection and certification services market has experienced steady growth in recent years due to the increasing demand for quality control and safety measures across various industries such as manufacturing, construction, and oil and gas. These companies offer various inspection services, including material testing, non-destructive testing, and quality assurance. This growth is also driven by the globalization of supply chains and the need for independent verification of product quality and compliance with local and international regulations. One of the significant trends is the adoption of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve the inspection process and accuracy. There is a growing trend toward outsourcing inspection services to third-party providers to reduce costs and increase efficiency. The third-party inspection services market is expected to continue its growth trajectory in the coming years.

A Trusted International Brand
In the inspection services industry, clients typically have high expectations for the quality and thoroughness of the inspection process. They expect inspectors to have a deep understanding of the specific industry or field being inspected and the relevant regulations and standards that must be followed. Clients also expect inspectors to be professional, reliable, and responsive to their needs and concerns. The inspection services industry also faces several challenges that can impact its success and profitability, like the high cost of equipment and technology required to perform inspections accurately and efficiently and the shortage of skilled professionals. Gulf Lloyds Industrial Services invests in training its inspectors and keeping them up to date with the latest industry standards and regulations to fulfill client expectations. The company ensures that its inspectors are equipped with the necessary tools and technology to conduct thorough and accurate inspections. GLIS implements technology solutions that can help streamline processes and reduce costs and focuses on building solid relationships with clients by providing high-quality services and excellent customer service.

Gulf Lloyds was founded in 2008 by three working partners with a vision to fill the gap in the market by providing quality inspection services to Indian industries at a cost-effective price. The company began by offering subcontracting and understanding industrial needs, starting with just one employee, a desktop, and a printer in a 10 sq. ft. room. The dedication and hard work paid off as they soon identified the economic gap in the quality inspection services provided by European companies ruling over Indian industries. With the same competence and reliability, Gulf Lloyds began offering a broad spectrum of customer-oriented inspection and certification services efficiently and cost-effectively. In no time, the company expanded its operations, opening 10 offices across India and 29 offices across the globe, with a specially incorporated group of companies working in Canada, the USA, the UK, UAE, Africa, Europe, Egypt, Asia, and more.

Today, Gulf Lloyds boasts a workforce of 1296+ employees, including three directors and one employee who started the journey together. Its clients include IOCL, ADANI TOTAL GAS, India Oil-Adani Gas, BPCL, HPCL, ONGC, OPAL, Gujarat Gas, IRM Energy, Indraprastha Gas, GAIL, OIL, and more.

“This journey of Gulf Lloyds is a testament to the vision and dedication of its founders and the hard work of its employees, who have turned a small idea into a global success story. We are recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. We ensure our value-added services benefit our valuable customers regularly”, says Jaykumaar B, CEO, Gulf Lloyds.
