Element Materials Technology has completed the rebrand of four aerospace laboratories in the US and Mexico following its recent acquisition of Exova Group.
Laboratories in Portland, Oregon; Glendale Heights, Illinois; Gary, Indiana; and Monterrey, Mexico are now operating under the Element brand, with the Glendale Heights location now identified as ‘Element Chicago.’
These are the first laboratories to be rebranded in a programme of integration the group is undertaking.
“It is with great pleasure that we can officially welcome these first four rebranded laboratories to the Element Group,” states Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element. “This is a major milestone in what is a very extensive integration programme that involves close to 140 former Exova laboratories being integrated to Element. I am delighted with the results, which are down to the hard work and focus of the laboratory teams and the project managers that have supported them. Our alliance with Exova has created one world-class global testing services partner and we are excited to continue supporting our customers under the Element brand, offering cost effective and innovative solutions.’’
With 44 laboratories located in the Americas and Europe, Element provides a comprehensive range of materials testing, product qualification testing and calibration services for the aerospace industry.
