LONDON, UK – March 6, 2019 – Element Materials Technology (Element) has announced that two more of its laboratories have been added to Bombardier’s Approved Supplier List (ASL).

Both Element’s Huntington Beach, California and Seville, Spain laboratories are now approved to perform metallic and non-metallic materials testing as part of the company’s supply chain in Europe and North America. This includes tests such as high cycle fatigue and low cycle fatigue dynamics testing, tensile, hardness and impact static testing, metallography and chemical analysis.

The approval expands the scope of Element’s services available to Bombardier and its supply chain across the two continents, and the company has already received testing orders from strategic Bombardier suppliers, such as MHI Canada Aerospace, Inc, a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element, said: “The addition of these two laboratories on to Bombardier’s Approved Supplier List is further approval from a highly regarded, multinational aircraft manufacturer and is testimony of our status as a key player in the critical path of any aerospace supply chain.

This is an exciting time for Bombardier as it begins to ramp up its Global 7000 and 7500 program, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support the company as it brings some of the world’s most important and safest aircraft to the skies.”

Element has over 80 years’ experience in both commercial and military aerospace testing and dedicates more than 3,000 technicians, engineers and scientists to the sector. The company has 29 Nadcap-accredited laboratories with 46 Nadcap accreditations, and its customer approvals, technical expertise, and geographical footprint is unrivaled in the aerospace testing, inspection and certification industry.
