Element Materials Technology has announced that it has completed the formation of a team of materials testing experts to support the Global Oil & Gas sector.
Marie Halliday, Global Coating Specialist and George Winning, Global Corrosion Specialist, will join Barry Thomson, Global Polymers Specialist and Andy Barron, Global Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics Specialist, to lead the future technical development of Element’s material testing, product qualification testing and consultancy service offerings. Appointing leading Engaged Experts from across the Oil & Gas industry, Element’s Executive Management Team has delivered on its ambitious strategic objective in support of its goal of becoming the most trusted testing partner in the industry.
Tasked to deliver Element’s long-term commitment to the Oil & Gas sector and respond to the needs of its key clients across some of the most challenging industry projects, this team of experts will complement the existing Engaged Experts located across Element’s platform of laboratories.

We are delighted to have delivered on this objective now having such highly regarded technical specialists supporting our clients in this global industry. Marie and George are recognised global leaders in their fields whose technical expertise will supplement the outstanding abilities of our existing team members. Our Global Oil & Gas Specialists will work in partnership with our key clients to develop both our existing and future service ranges as well as to direct any future technology investments we may choose to make.”
“Despite the current short-term industry trading conditions, Element will continue to strengthen its team of Engaged Experts to meet the technical and commercial challenges of the Oil & Gas sector, both now and in the future. Our focus remains on delivering our long-term objective to become the most trusted testing partner in the Oil & Gas sector,” continued Noall.
