LONDON, UK – March 9, 2015 – Exova (now owned by Element Materials Technology), the global testing, calibration and advisory services provider, has been approved by aircraft manufacturer Embraer to provide material testing services through its laboratory in Toulouse, France.
Approval was granted following a technical evaluation of the Toulouse laboratory and all test-related processes including quality management systems. The range of approved testing includes mechanical, corrosion and composites testing, and thermal analysis. Toulouse joins Exova’s Bridgwater, UK laboratory as an Embraer-approved facility, increasing capacity to meet the needs of Embraer’s European operations and supply chain.
