NEWTOWN, CT-TUV Rheinland North America Holding Inc., supplier of testing, assessment and certification services, has acquired Non-Destructive Testing Services (NDT), a full-service material inspection company based in Grand Rapids, MI.

“With the addition of Non-Destructive Testing Services, we can extend our capabilities to address the growing demand for material testing services among our customers,” says Stephan Schmitt, president and chief executive officer of TUV Rheinland North America Holding Inc.

NDT uses a variety of exclusive commercial testing equipment to maximize the types and sizes of materials that can be tested. For example, its destructive testing equipment is capable of exerting 1.2 million pounds of pressure to pull apart or crush materials up to 4 inches in diameter, while testing breaking points or thresholds used to anchor or support a variety of objects.

NDT’s services include a full range of nondestructive testing methods, quality control and assurance functions, and physical testing for the aircraft, automotive, railroad, bridge/building, casting and forging, chemical, civil, Department of Transportation, electronics, light/heavy manufacturing, medical and prosthetics, petrochemical, and utility industries.

“Non-Destructive Testing Services is very excited to join the TUV Rheinland family of companies,” says Robert C. Bills, chief executive officer of Non-Destructive Testing Services. “We see many opportunities to not only grow nationally but globally. Ultimately, our merger with TUV Rheinland will combine our numerous strengths to approach new markets and contracts that were previously out of reach.”
