Following its acquisition by Element (London, U.K.), Delsen Testing Laboratories (Glendale, Calif., USA) will be formally rebranded under the Element Materials Technology name, becoming Element Los Angeles. The company is expected to continue to play a key role in the company’s alignment with aerospace primes that focus their R&D budgets increasingly on composite materials.

On the rebranding, Rick Sluiters, Element’s executive vice president, aerospace, comments: “We are delighted that Delsen has now officially become part of the Element platform. Our goal is for Element Los Angeles to become a global center of excellence for polymer matrix composites (PMC) knowledge by 2018.”

The Nadcap-approved laboratory in Glendale holds a number of major aerospace prime approvals and recently received Airbus accreditation for AITM 2.0005, 2.0003, 2.0004, 2.0005 and 2.0038 standards.

The site is now fully integrated into the Element platform, encompassing quality systems, health and safety and technical and commercial sharing. It will be officially known as Element Los Angeles as of Oct. 1, 2014.
