A new agreement between Element Materials Technology (Element) and Rolls-Royce will provide Element’s customers with access to the cutting-edge rig and component test capability and engineering expertise of Rolls-Royce in Germany.
Building on a decade-long relationship between the two companies, the agreement sees Element expand its current capabilities to provide its customers with a much broader range of testing. The unrivaled capabilities of the Rolls-Royce test facility include unique materials testing, such as multiaxial fatigue capabilities, composite component vibration, and large-scale spin testing.
Rolls-Royce has made a significant investment in its high-end test facilities and this agreement will open up access to customers from a wide range of end markets such as aerospace, energy, automotive, and agriculture.
We have a proud history of supporting Rolls-Royce’s core businesses and I am delighted that we have been able to further cement our relationship through this agreement. The combination of testing capabilities, including those unique to Rolls-Royce, offers Element customers an attractive package of services across multiple sectors and gives them access to an even broader suite of services under our industry-leading one-stop-shop approach to account management. This is a real win-win for both companies and our customers across the world.
Matt Hopkinson, EVP EMEAA, Element
We are excited to enter into this agreement with Element to provide the same high-quality testing capabilities and service to Element customers that we use every day to test Rolls-Royce’s engines, materials, and components. This will allow us to use Element’s recognized direct route to market to explore opportunities and offer new capabilities to market for the benefit of our customers.
