Aerospace labs complete Element rebrand

Sign at Element lab rebranding

Element Materials Technology has rebranded its four aerospace laboratories in the USA and Mexico following its recent acquisition of Exova.

The 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 comprehensive program of integration the group is undertaking. Element acquired materials testing and product qualification company Exova in June 2017 to create Element Materials Technology.

Rick Sluiters, executive vice president of aerospace at Element, said, “This is a major milestone in what is a very extensive integration program that involves close to 140 former Exova laboratories being integrated to Element.

“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.’’

Element provides aerospace testing services around the world and has 44 laboratories in the Americas and Europe that provide materials testing, product qualification testing, and calibration services for the industry.

The Element group employs 6,200 Engaged Experts and has 200 laboratories in more than 30 countries.
