Element Materials Technology has acquired German product testing company EMV Testhaus.
Founded in 1991 by general manager Charlotte Klein, EMV has a lab in Straubing near Regensburg in Germany and an office in Taiwan. The collaboration between the two will expand both companies’ footprints and broaden their scope of testing services, specifically enabling Element access to additional EMC analysis capabilities.
“We are extremely pleased to bring EMV Testhaus into the Element family. The German automotive industry is pioneering tremendous change with the rapid development of connected autonomous vehicles and electrification. Through the acquisition of EMV Testhaus we will expand our existing EMC testing capabilities. We will also be able to broaden our services to our automotive and medical customers, as well as expanding our geographical footprint in southern Germany, Austria and Eastern Europe,” said Charles Noall, president and CEO at Element.
Charlotte Klein, general manager at EMV Testhaus, added, “We are excited to join Element and to add our capabilities to such a strong global company. As we come together as businesses, we look forward to introducing our customers and colleagues to the Element Group’s strengths.”
