The Forensic Services group of companies began in Asia in 1986 to carry out forensic investigations into the causes of fire, explosion and engineering breakdown throughout Asia. In the ensuing years we have grown to a full time staff of 22 with offices in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. We conduct about 300 consultations each year, almost all in Asia. We have in-house ancillary expertise such as GC/MS analysis of fire site debris, and metallurgical failure analysis.
Our forensic consultants are professionally qualified in the applied sciences and engineering, and are engaged full time in the work described; with graduates in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electronic and electrical engineering, metallurgy, physics, chemistry, forensic science, materials science and marine science. Every investigation is conducted with the view that the findings may need to be presented and justified in a court of law. Our consultants have appeared as expert forensic witnesses in courts in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Hongkong, Saipan and the Philippines, most often in respect of fire.
Countries In Which We Work
Our base is in Kuala Lumpur and we work throughout Asia. Our forensic consultants have conducted investigations into fires, explosions and engineering breakdowns in Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China,Taiwan, Vietnam, Laos, South Korea, Macau, Sri Lanka, Saipan, Guam, Papua New Guinea, Japan, South Africa, Russia, Maldives and the Philippines.
Spread of Expertise
All our forensic consultants are based in Asia and whatever their discipline, engage in fire and explosion investigation in addition to their core expertise. For example, a fire at a diesel engine or a power station transformer is in our opinion best investigated by an forensic engineer with the appropriate engineering background. We find that by having forensic engineers with various disciplines working under the same roof, with over 6,000 in-house case histories to refer to, provides a very strong base to investigate fires and explosions over a wide range of industries.
