Specialist fire testing provider, Exova Warringtonfire, has more than doubled capacity at its Ghent laboratory in response to increased customer demand.
The €150,000 investment has seen its modular building facility expand from 300m² to 750m², creating more space for preparation of wall and floor test specimens and more room for storage of materials and prepared specimens.
The additional space also allows for a reduction in testing lead times, and increased confidentiality, offering an extended and improved service to customers.
Bart Sette, General Manager for Exova Warringtonfire Ghent commented: “The expansion of our modular building facility demonstrates Exova Warringtonfire’s continued commitment to meeting the needs of our growing number of customers. As a result of this investment we will be able to provide enhanced levels of service, including improved turnaround times and additional high quality preparation facilities”.
