The specialist expertise of our experienced staff and the calibrated test facilities of the well-equipped laboratories at our new premises have again and again resulted in the effortless acquisition of recognition, accreditation and certification, so important for pan-European test activities. Testing and monitoring activities thus result in our staff travelling regularly throughout Germany, as well as to many European countries and even further.
