MET Laboratories has been acquired by Eurofins Scientific, adding to the global organisation’s testing, certification and compliance portfolio.
Eurofins Scientific, the parent company of Eurofins York, has acquired MET Laboratories, a US testing, certification and compliance specialist for electrical products.
MET specialises in the testing and certification of medical devices, household appliances, automotive and aerospace products. MET ensures that its customer’s products or equipment comply with government, regulatory, and industry safety standards to protect populations and the workplace from potential risks associated with use. MET employs 200 people in its operations in the USA, China, Taiwan and Korea.
MET Labs has provided the global marketplace with diversified testing, certification and compliance services for 60 years. In 1989, MET became the first Nationally Recognised Testing Laboratory (NRTL) approved to certify for product safety to over 200 UL standard categories and is trusted by manufacturers worldwide for fast market access. MET is the last major NRTL to become part of a global testing organisation.
According to Rob Frier, President of MET Labs: “Joining the Eurofins network was a natural progression for MET Labs and provides major growth opportunities for our business and extended services for our clients. With the global network and backing of one of the world’s largest testing and certification organisations, MET’s customers will benefit from enhanced service offerings and innovation. The MET brand will continue to represent the highest level of competence and integrity”.
