London UK, October 1 2015 – Element Materials Technology is pleased to announce that TRaC Global Ltd has now been formally rebranded under the Element name.   Acquired on the 7th May 2015, the integration of all TRaC Global’s locations has been completed in record time with zero disruption to both the business and more importantly to its clients in the Aerospace, Defense, Medical, Radio and Telecommunications sectors.

The acquisition of TRaC is a hugely important step for Element in achieving its goal of becoming the recognized market leader for providing material testing and product qualification testing services to the global Aerospace industry, and has been enthusiastically received by customers of both organizations”.   

“During the integration process we promised TRaC’s clients and staff that it would be “business as usual”, so I am especially pleased to report that we have successfully delivered on our commitment over the last six months, considering that this is Element’s largest acquisition to date.”   

Mark Heaven, CEO, TRaC adds: “This seamless integration with Element and the official rebranding marks a new era for our clients, one that we are very excited about.
