Eurofins Acquires MET Labs

In 1989, MET became the first Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) approved to certify the product safety of imports to North America in over 200 UL standard categories, and today is trusted by manufacturers worldwide for fast market access.

MET is the last major NRTL to become part of a global testing organization and employs 200 people in its operations in the US, China, Taiwan and Korea.

The acquisition of MET continues Eurofins’ worldwide expansion in its global offering of electrical product testing. This growth further enhances the comprehensive portfolio of accredited testing capabilities and complimentary regulatory compliance services and products which can all be accessed through a single point of contact via Eurofins York.

Rob Frier, President of MET Labs, commented: “Joining the Eurofins network was a natural progression for MET Labs and provides major growth opportunities for our business and extended services for our clients. With the global network and backing of one of the world’s leading testing and certification organisations, MET’s customers will benefit from enhanced service offerings and innovation. The MET brand will continue to represent the highest level of competence and integrity.”
