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.
Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element, said: “It is with great pleasure that we can officially welcome these first four rebranded laboratories to the Element Group. This is a major milestone in what is a very extensive integration program that involves close to 140 former Exova laboratories being integrated into 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.’’
