At an opening event on 26th September at the 30,000 sq. ft. facility, Element confirmed it has completed a number of accreditations including ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and Nadcap, with OEM audits underway.

The ceremony at the new laboratory welcomed 70 customers, Shanghai Qingpu District government officials, members of Element’s senior management team and 23 Shanghai colleagues.

Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace, commented: “We were pleased to welcome customers and friends to the opening of this impressive laboratory.  With our new Element aerospace experts, new accreditations and state of the art equipment, we are well placed to support the Chinese aerospace industry. 

The impressive range of services we are offering, and our close proximity to many of our customers, will bring them savings in both time and money.  In creating this new facility, Element is responding to customer need and the rapid business growth that the industry is undergoing in the region.”

The Shanghai aerospace laboratory specialises in a comprehensive range of services that include: chemical analysis; fatigue testing; failure investigation; mechanical testing; metallurgical analysis, and on-site testing at client sites. Customers will also benefit from pre-testing services, including a full machine shop and heat treatment furnaces for the treatment of materials prior to testing.

Element’s support of the Chinese aerospace sector is well established, having recently successfully delivered a year-long project to investigate the hydrodynamic behaviour of the new Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) C919 aircraft at the Element Warwick laboratory in the UK.
