Updates

Element has signed a 12 year framework agreement with Saab AB, with an estimated value of more than US $100m, to deliver calibration and materials expertise and testing services over the next six years, with a six-year extension option.

Element will carry out calibration, inspection and consultancy work at Saab’s onsite facilities, working closely and integrating with Saab’s operations. It will also provide a wide range of consultancy services as well as mechanical, analytical and non-destructive testing from its laboratories in Sweden. The work will be performed according to the specialist requirements of Saab, which require extensive approvals and exceptionally high levels of service.

Element’s calibration experts will support Saab in maintaining reliable and quality compliant measuring operations with uniform procedures across locations, with the common goal to reduce life cycle costs of measuring equipment. Its materials testing, inspection and advisory services will ensure structural integrity of materials, processes, products and systems, as well as supporting Saab’s R&D and production units and end market maintenance service units.

Matt Hopkinson, EVP EMEAA at Element, said:

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Saab and this agreement is a strong confirmation of Element’s position as one of the leading providers of technically demanding services to the Aerospace and Defense industries. The contract builds on our long-standing track record with Saab and will allow us to continuously improve our delivery program and facilitate greater efficiency and value for one of our most valued clients. We very much look forward to serving Saab into the medium term future and beyond.”

We have taken several steps to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our people, our operations and by extension our customers. Most onsite services, visits to our laboratories and personal customer meetings have been postponed for the time being, but we are of course ready to assist you in our laboratories.

Element has two priorities: keeping our colleagues and their families as safe as we can and ensuring that we minimize disruption to operations. We have central and regional crisis management teams working with local leadership across operations, safety and HR. This ensures that we can continue to provide the support that our colleagues and customers need while taking full account of local circumstances and government guidance.

We are constantly monitoring what is a fluid situation and review all advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), national and local governments and other relevant authorities to agree the necessary actions to protect our people, communities and our business in these challenging times.
