Element Secures 6+6 year Framework Agreement with Saab for Calibration and Material Testing

Element Materials Technology (Element) has signed a framework agreement with Saab AB, with an estimated value of more than US $100m, to deliver calibration and materials expertise and testing services over the next six years, with a six-year extension option.

Element will carry out calibration, inspection and consultancy work at Saab’s onsite facilities, working closely and integrating with Saab’s operations. It will also provide a wide range of consultancy services as well as mechanical, analytical and non-destructive testing from its laboratory in Linköping, Sweden. The work will be performed according to the specialist requirements of Saab, which require extensive approvals and exceptionally high levels of service.

Element’s calibration experts will support Saab in maintaining reliable and quality compliant measuring operations with uniform procedures across locations, with the common goal to reduce life cycle costs of measuring equipment. Its materials testing, inspection and advisory services will ensure structural integrity of materials, processes, products and systems, as well as supporting Saab’s R&D and production units and end market maintenance service units.

We are delighted to extend our relationship with Saab and this agreement is a strong confirmation of Element’s position as one of the leading providers of technically demanding services to the Aerospace and Defense industries. The contract builds on our long-standing track record with Saab and will allow us to continuously improve our delivery program and facilitate greater efficiency and value for one of our most valued clients. We very much look forward to serving Saab into the medium term future and beyond.
