London, UK – January 20, 2020 – Element Materials Technology (Element) has formally launched Element Digital Engineering, taking a significant step forward on its journey to becoming a leader in engineering simulation, modelling, data science and artificial intelligence to solve complex industrial challenges for our customers, as well as ensuring the safety and regulatory compliance of their products.
Element Digital Engineering’s specialists bring with them capabilities not readily available in the testing market, including digital twinning, machine learning, and mathematical optimisation to bolster Element’s comprehensive range of existing testing services. The Digital Engineering team will primarily focus on the global medical device, energy transition, aerospace, consumer goods and mining markets.
This new business builds on Element’s existing capability in areas such as finite element analysis (FEA) and engineering critical assessment (ECA), and has been accelerated by the acquisition in early 2021 of a leading engineering and modelling simulation company based in Cambridge, UK. This acquisition and the launch of Element Digital Engineering supports Element’s ambitions and focus on innovation and digitization to develop industry leading capabilities and solutions for our customers.
Jo Wetz, CEO at Element, said: “Element Digital Engineering is an exciting and natural extension of our commitment to develop specialist technical and digital services to solve complex problems for our customers who are working at the cutting edge of their industries. With this new expertise available to the Group, we look forward to creating new opportunities for digital technical knowledge sharing and improving partnerships with our customers.”
The Element Materials Technology Group is one of the world’s leading global providers of testing, inspection and certification services for a diverse range of materials, products and technologies in advanced industrial supply chains where failure is not an option. Headquartered in London, UK, Element’s team of more than 6,000 expert scientists, engineers and technicians operate from around 200 locations across five continents, delivering an extensive range of solutions to customers in critical industries including aerospace, connected technologies, construction, defense, energy, environmental, life sciences and transportation.
