About Element Berlin

Element Berlin, formerly known as GEVA (Gesellschaft für Entwicklung und Versuch Adlershof GmbH), is a specialist provider of materials, product qualification and systems testing to the global Aerospace industry.


Founded in 1999, GEVA was the result of a combination of the component testing division of BMW Rolls-Royce GmbH, Oberursel (near Frankfurt) and Dahlewitz (in Berlin). Since its formation, this laboratory has consistently developed and delivered a range of highly sophisticated testing:



At Element Berlin, our customers often tell us that we are not a typical “industrial” test lab, because of our continued focus on the more technically challenging, complex, and experimental side of the testing spectrum. Our customers use us because: “we often start where other testing labs give up”.
