COMPANY PROFILE

The Kaizen Lab laboratory was founded in July 2014 with the aim of offering to those who work in the metallurgical sector a valid service of testing and investigation of its products and in this context already in February 2015 obtains the first accreditation to the requirements of the ISO standard / IEC 17025.
Over the years more and more customers have appreciated our expertise, precision and punctuality and this has meant that the laboratory has continued to develop and in a few years has seen the number and type of tests performed grow and each time accredited, the number of people that operate there and the equipment available.
Many of these customers operate in the “Oil & Gas” sector.
