Global testing group Exova has made significant investments to upgrade its laboratory in Mumbai, India.
Acquired by Exova in July 2014, the Mumbai facility provides specialist metallurgical testing to customers in sectors including oil and gas, industrials and infrastructure in India.
The infrastructure improvements have allowed Exova to better perform sour service related corrosion testing such as hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC), sulphide stress-corrosion cracking (SSCC) and hydrogen disbonding.
It has also increased capacity and improved turnaround time, providing the most efficient service for Exova customers.
Exova’s investment reflects a growing demand for specialist testing in India as a result of the country’s expansion in global manufacturing operations and increased industrial and infrastructure investment.
Matt Davies, Managing Director for Exova in the Middle East, Asia and Asia Pacific, said: “Exova moved into India in 2014 to expand our global footprint and to build a high-end technical offering in an important emerging market. We have had many achievements in Mumbai in the last 18 months and this investment in capabilities reflects the opportunities we see for continued technical growth and customer demand in the country.”
