Element Materials Technology (Element) has completed the formal rebranding and integration of all Exova laboratories in the oil and gas sector. Following the acquisition of Exova Group Ltd in June 2017, Element has created one, world-class global testing services partner and the rebrand of its laboratories marks the strengthening of its global presence in oil & gas testing.

The group has united its full oil and gas team into one sector, providing customers in the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East with the provision of highly comprehensive and technically demanding testing services closer to their operations. Services include corrosion, coatings, metallurgical testing and non-destructive inspection, as well as providing advanced expertise in composites, polymers, critical weld qualification testing and analysis and engineering critical assessments.

Each rebrand was completed on time and, during the integration process, dedicated project managers supported local teams in making the necessary changes to all aspects of a laboratory’s operation. Accreditation bodies, customers, and other stakeholders were fully liaised with throughout the process to ensure full confidence in the changes being made.

Dr. Rod Martin, EVP for Oil & Gas, Element, commented: “Over the last few years, we have invested heavily in growing Element’s Oil & Gas testing presence and the acquisition of Exova has brought us considerable further strength in this area. Together, this means that we are now able to service our oil and gas customers and their suppliers as a single source provider for both materials testing and non-destructive inspection services on a global scale.”

Element is a market leading provider of materials testing and inspection services to the global Oil & Gas sector. The company’s network of experts and specialist centres of excellence deliver an extensive range of services including materials characterisation; fatigue and fracture mechanics; engineering critical assessments; corrosion and coatings testing; weld testing and weld procedure qualification services and non-destructive inspection services for a diverse range of metals, polymers and elastomers.
