Element Materials Technology has added two more of its laboratories to Bombardier’s Approved Supplier List (ASL).
Element’s Huntington Beach, California and Seville, Spain laboratories are now approved to perform metallic and non-metallic materials testing as part of Bombardier’s supply chain in North America and Europe. This includes tests such as high cycle fatigue and low cycle fatigue dynamics testing; tensile, hardness, and impact static testing; metallography; and chemical analysis.
Element has already received testing orders from strategic Bombardier suppliers, such as MHI Canada Aerospace Inc, a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element, said, “The addition of these two laboratories to Bombardier’s Approved Supplier List is further approval from a highly regarded, multinational aircraft manufacturer and is testimony of our status as a key player in the critical path of any aerospace supply chain.
“This is an exciting time for Bombardier as it begins to ramp up its Global 7000 and 7500 program, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support the company as it brings some of the world’s most important and safest aircraft to the skies.”
Element has more than 80 years’ experience in both commercial and military aerospace testing and dedicates more than 3,000 technicians, engineers, and scientists to the sector. The company has 29 Nadcap-accredited laboratories with 46 Nadcap accreditations.
