Established in 2007, TISA LIFEBOAT & LA SERVICES is a subsidiary company of Talleres Industriales created to offer specialized services for lifeboat safety and launching appliances.

The implementation of the revision of Reg. III/20.11 of SOLAS by Resolution MSC 152 (78) in force since July 1st, 2005 requires that the careful and total examination of lifeboats and cranes, as well as the dynamic testing of winch brakes and operational testing of lifeboat on-load release gear be carried out by representatives or by a trained or certified person by the manufacturers, according to the “Guidelines for Periodic Servicing and Maintenance of Lifeboats, Launching Appliances and On-Load Release Gear”.

We have performed hundreds of annual and five-year onboard inspections in ships in the Cristobal and Balboa ports as well as in other terminals in the Panama Canal area. Due to our strategic location, our service engineers can easily travel in short notice to any country in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. In Colombia we have a service engineer station that can provide service on short notice to any terminal or port in either coast in a cost-efficient manner.

Additionally, TISA LIFEBOAT & LA SERVICES has been authorized by most Administrations and Class Registries to inspect and certify all the Life Saving Appliances installed onboard.

Talleres Industriales is always looking to invest on any service, equipment or know-how for the benefit of our clients and partners throughout the world.
