The Intertek laboratory in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, has been certified with methods category A to conduct materials testing to Daimler specifications using a select number of methods. The facility is reportedly the first in the USA to be awarded by Daimler.
Component suppliers of Daimler can ensure product quality while reducing the costs and resources typically incurred without the assistance of a third party lab.
The goal of Daimler’s Class A program is to support suppliers by establishing a global network of approved labs to test materials. Intertek was one of a select number of facilities invited to apply for the program and the company underwent an intensive seven-step process in order to qualify. Intertek is working with Daimler to expand the approval to other labs in Intertek’s global network.
