Automotive Professional Services
From headlights to mufflers, chassis to interiors and everything in between, Intertek offers the professional testing and certification services automotive customers need to set their products apart.
Automotive products today need to be safe and strong. Is your chassis built to defend against salt spray erosion? How does your engine respond in high altitude? Will your vehicle withstand years of vibration?
Substantiate the durability of the engine or shocks, for example, or collaborate on a build of specific test methods for key areas of product development. Expedite environmental exposure testing for everything from -45°C to 177°C, optimize thermal shock or tensile strength testing, targeted electrical testing, and much more.
The suite of Professional Automotive Services available from Intertek helps accelerate the viability and safety of your automobile products, with the opportunity for customization and personalized builds created to meet your standards and needs. With global locations and an ever-innovative expert team, Intertek is set to help your automotive products move into the fast lane.
