Element Materials Technology (Element) has completed the formal rebranding and integration of all Exova laboratories in the Oil & Gas sector. Following the acquisition of Exova Group Ltd in June 2017, Element has created one, world-class global testing services partner and the rebrand of its laboratories marks the strengthening of its global presence in oil & gas testing.
