Element Materials Technology Acquires MAR-TEST, Inc.

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS — FEBRUARY 1, 2012 — Element Materials Technology has acquired MAR-TEST headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. The addition of MAR-TEST and its world-class reputation for high-quality mechanical testing within the Aerospace & Defense, Power Generation and Medical Device industries, further confirms Element’s resolve to provide industry-leading service for these rapidly growing business sectors.

"I'm very pleased to complete this transaction underlining our commitment to significantly strengthen Element’s service offering of high-end routine testing to the Aerospace & Defense and Power Generation industries,” said Charles Noall, President and CEO of Element. “MAR-TEST is a great company, recognized as a reference laboratory in this sector, and this acquisition will further expand our capabilities and capacity to service these quality-critical supply chains."

MAR-TEST is recognized as a worldwide leader in mechanical testing with well equipped testing laboratories in Cincinnati and Stuart, Florida and a high-end machine shop that specializes in sample manufacturing in Cincinnati. As a preferred fatigue and fracture mechanics lab, MAR-TEST has provided testing services ranging from materials for jet engines and NASA space vehicles to artificial hip and spinal implants.
