In July 2014, Accutek Testing Laboratory was acquired by Element Materials Technology and integrated into the Element platform of laboratories, formally rebranding under the Element brand in November 2014. 

The joining of Accutek and Element Materials Technology effectively creates the largest, dedicated testing group specializing in Materials Testing and Product Qualification Testing operating in the USA and significantly enhances the breadth, depth and geographic reach Accutek clients now can access as part of the Element global platform of testing capabilities, capacities and experts. 

Why Element?

Our new parent company, Element, chose the name because it captures the role our customers have said we play for them, testing and technical expertise with engaged customer service. And, we hope it signals our efforts to see the big picture without losing sight of the important details at hand.

This change marks an important milestone as we expand our services, grow our capabilities, and continue to be your mission critical testing partner.

The people you know and service you trust

Know that Element is everything we’ve been, only better. While our name has changed, one thing that will not: our commitment to you, our customer. We’ll continue to strive to be your critical element for success.
