In October 2015, Cascade Tek was acquired by Element Materials Technology and integrated into the Element platform of global laboratories, formally rebranding under the Element brand in May 2016.
The joining of Cascade Tek 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 Cascade Tek clients now can access as part of the Element global platform of testing capabilities, capacities and experts.
