Element acquires Delsen Testing Laboratories

Delsen, is based in Glendale, California.

“The primes are focusing their R&D budgets increasingly towards composite materials," notes Charles Noall, President and CEO of Element.

"As a result, the purchase of one of the most highly regarded composite testing laboratories in America marks a considerable step in Element’s strategy to become a market-leader in aerospace materials testing services, as well as the world’s largest dedicated materials testing provider."

Delsen is Nadcap approved and holds a number of major aerospace prime approvals.

“We envision Delsen becoming a ‘centre of excellence’ in aerospace composite materials testing," Noall adds.
