The company announces the acquisition of Accutek Testing, a materials testing business with extensive experience serving the Aerospace and Medical Device sectors. With this purchase, Accutek’s laboratory becomes Element’s 44th facility worldwide.

Accutek, a specialist in a wide range of mechanical tests, metallurgical tests, weld services and providing expert consultation, is based in a dedicated 54,000 sq ft laboratory located in Cincinnati, OH. The laboratory has Nadcap accreditation for metallic and non-metallic materials testing, and is Element’s 13th facility in the US awarded a prestigious Nadcap certificate, believed to be the most held by any independent materials testing company in the country.
