Element Materials Technology has made further investments in its Wednesbury, UK base. Since the laboratory opened its doors in June 2017, Element has continued to invest in the facilities at the 50,000ft2 site.
In the last 12 months, Element has procured multi-point lock durability test rigs that facilitate testing to the latest draft of EN 15685; an Erichsen 430P scratch hardness tester, which enables the team to perform analysis against the latest Jaguar Land Rover specifications; and several new aftermarket vehicle security testing capabilities, which come in response to changing market conditions.
Rob Veitch, EVP of fire and building products at Element, said, “We opened the Wednesbury laboratory because we recognized the demand from national and international customers in the automotive, doors and windows, and hardware industries, and we have continued to see this demand grow over the last two years.
“The sectors we serve are always evolving, and our offering must develop with them, while maintaining the highest level of technical proficiency. We are dedicated to delivering certainty to our customers and nurturing a relationship of trust, and our most recent investments reflect our commitment to the provision of industry-leading testing services.”
