Vuoteen 1994 asti liiketoiminta oli osa FFV Aerotechia. 1. tammikuuta 1994 FFV Aerotechin tytäryhtiöksi muodostettiin FFV Metrology. Samana vuonna perustimme myös Suomeen FFV Mittaustekniikka Oy:n.
Vuonna 1998 Celsius-konserni hankki FFV:n ja sen nimeksi muutettiin Celsius Metech. Vuonna 1999 perustettiin yritykset Tanskaan ja Saksaan. Vuonna 2000 Saab hankki Celsius-konsernin ja sen nimeksi tuli Saab Metech.
In 2006, Saab signed an agreement with Bodycote International Plc on the transfer of shares in Saab Metech and its subsidiaries.At this point, Bodycote acquired a large number of test facilities around the world and Bodycote Testing Group was established. Our name became Bodycote Metech.
In 2008, the entire Bodycote Testing Group was acquired by the American private equity company CD&R. The new name became Exova and we became Exova Metech. In 2013, we became established in the Czech Republic and in 2014, we moved into Norway while also expanding outside Europe into China and USA as a result of an outsourcing partnership.
In June 2017, Exova Group was acquired by Element Materials Technology. We are the calibration division of Element, now known as Element Metech from June 2018.
