About us

Westmoreland Mechanical Testing and Research Ltd

Westmoreland Mechanical Testing and Research Ltd. was launched in April 2003 recently relocated in 2015 to take up residence in state-of-the-art laboratories on Banbury's Wildmere Road, adjacent to the easily accessible junction 11 on the M40 London to Birmingham motorway. These high-tech labs provide a range of ISO/ASTM standard tests either in volume or special one-off tests for customers in the aerospace, automotive, nuclear, off-shore and medical industries. Most materials, in any shape or form can be mechanically tested and/or chemically analysed.

Our move into the UK represents a firm commitment to expanding the company's World-Class services into the European and Asian marketplace for materials testing services. We are already one of the largest single independent providers of materials testing in Europe and continually adding to our capacity as the business develops. In the UK, additional to our state-of-the-art core mechanical testing facilities, we also have niche capability in certain areas These include surface engineering technology, bonding/rivet repair/ fasteners technology, and various corrosion test methods. We also have excellent metallographic support, failure analysis, SEM work, adhesion tests, chemical analysis OES and salt spray facilities, alternate immersion testing and composites humidity conditioning facilities.

The testing capacity doubled within the first year of business and had subsequently quadrupled over the next few years and continues to grow significantly year on year.The fatigue testing facility alone is now thought to be the largest ‘independent’ laboratory of its kind in Europe! An extensive CNC machine shop enables production of test specimens on site including low stress grinding and polishing to comply with Nadcap, GE and Rolls Royce approvals

The customer base is wide and diverse with business coming from within the UK, Europe and Asia. The company is actively seeking to secure long term volume work agreements with major customers from various industrial and engineering sectors. such as the Forging/castings Industry, layered sintering technology/manufacturing, Aerospace, Automotive, Power generation, Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Plating Companies and the Medical industry and many others including Universities.
