TÜV Italia has opened a new €15m technological testing laboratory in Volpiano, Italy.

The Italian subsidiary of TÜV SÜD said its state-of-the-art buildings accommodate equipment for product testing, non-destructive testing and various tests and analysis for the industrial sector.

The site houses a large, modern semi-anechoic chamber for electromagnetic compatibility testing and a new bunker for non-destructive radiographic tests.

The project brings together laboratories from different sites at a single location and is part of TÜV Italia’s strategy to bundle activities and develop new synergies to offer a one-stop-shop for customers.

This new testing laboratory offers all the facilities for the aerospace, automotive and oil and gas industries to carry out a wide range of tests that meet their specific needs, plus the expertise of the technicians who perform these tests – all at a single site.

Oliver Jacob, CEO of TÜV Italia and CEO of TÜV SÜD Western Europe, affirmed, “We are very proud that the project was implemented on schedule and the laboratory is now ready for operation.”

“TÜV SÜD decided to invest in total around €15m in the project during these challenging times because the company has firm faith in Italy’s ability to continue developing and advancing its industrial capabilities for the future.”
