Intertek,  a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, will
highlight its new European automotive composites test facilities during the
prominent VDI “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” conference on April 2^nd
and 3^rd 2014 in Mannheim, Germany.

The functionality and usage of composites in automotive engineering is
expanding rapidly and there is a growing need for development work to support
diverse applications and production. As a result, the demand for independent
composites testing expertise using specialized test equipment and test
processes to meet these requirements has also increased.

Intertek’s Country Managing Director for the Benelux region, Eric Ris, said:
“Driven by the need for sustainable and lightweight materials the demand for
independent composites testing facilities by the automotive materials industry
is growing. Following on from the expansion of our automotive composites
testing facility in the US in 2010, we have extended this service into Europe
and are now able to provide global support to the automotive polymers and
composites industries.”

“This is yet another area in which Intertek is expanding its resources to meet
our customers’ needs, while also supporting global initiatives to increase
energy efficiency and reduce dependence on petroleum through usage of
innovative materials and technologies “ said Tim Hubbard, Intertek’s Vice
President of Transportation Technologies Business Line.

Intertek representatives will be available to discuss automotive plastics and
composites services during VDI Plastics in Automotive Engineering at booth 87.
