We build long term relationships with clients based on trust and this contract demonstrates our exceptional capabilities in the highly sensitive and technically advanced defence sector.”

The work spans a wide range of materials and will see experts from Exova Materials Technology in Sweden work as consultants to FMV in composite repair technology, polymer bonding and sealing technology, welding and brazing technology, non-destructive testing, coatings technology and fuel and lubricant technology for defence applications. The contract also includes the provision of metrological and calibration services for measurement tools and instruments to FMV and SAF by Exova Metech, the calibration and metrology division of Exova.
