MET Labs is pleased to announce that we have decided to join Eurofins Scientific and its network of over 400 laboratories in 42 countries. MET Labs, with its 60 year history as a global service leader for product approvals and regulatory certification of electrical products, will become a key component in Eurofins product testing portfolio.
In 1989, MET became the first Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) approved to certify for product safety to over 200 UL standard categories and has since grown to 200 employees within its operation in the US, China, Taiwan and Korea. MET is also a leader in testing and certification for EMC, wireless, medical devices, military, automotive, aerospace, and global market access.
Stephane Barrau, VP of Eurofins Consumer Products Testing, explains “The acquisition of MET Labs further demonstrates our ambition to be the market leader in global testing and certification, following the recent acquisitions of York EMC Services (UK) and Electrosuisse Product Testing (Switzerland). MET Labs provides an exciting opportunity with its range of high profile clients, and supports our shared plans to meet increasing demand, as well as offering the most comprehensive range of testing, certification, and compliance solutions.”
Eurofins is a global network of world-class laboratories that provides testing, certification, and consulting on the quality and safety of products to manufacturers, distributors and retailers. MET will leverage the established Eurofins product testing labs in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, China, and Thailand.
As evidenced from the strong partner relationship with MET for nearly a decade, Eurofins shares the same values we do. Rob Frier, President of MET Labs, said “Joining the Eurofins network was a natural progression for MET Labs and provides a major growth opportunity for both our business and extended services for our clients. With the stability and backing of one of the world’s leading testing and certification companies, MET Labs customers will benefit from improved services and innovation.”
