New Metallurgical Testing Laboratory unveils operations. The group employs around 625 people in five plant locations with an annual turnover of circa €130 million.
The Montpellier client has expanded its operations with a new metallurgical laboratory and testing facility at Milton
Science Park, near Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The ramp up in testing for the company, as a division of LTi Metaltech, follows accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).


UKAS accreditation provides formal recognition and ensures quality assurance of reliable, credible and accurate testing. Metaltest UK’s extensive services comply with best practice to internationally recognised standards such as ASTM, BS EN ISO and ASME. Systems under this certification are assessed against EN ISO 17025, which incorporates quality requirements for testing and
calibration within technical laboratories.


The testing organisation incorporates the customer portfolio of Caparo Testing Technologies in Witney, following its closure in 2015. The company provides bespoke metal testing solutions such as Tensile, Charpy, Hardness and Macro/Micro examinations to its customers in key sectors across the UK, delivering on custom requirements and quick turnaround times.
