SGS : Expansion of SGS Metals and Minerals Laboratory in Spijkenisse, Rotterdam Is Underway

07/21/2021 | 05:59am EDT
The SGS metals and minerals trade commodities group has seen a rising demand for testing services to meet client requirements. To facilitate the needs of our clients, we are thrilled to announce that construction of our new, state-of-the-art laboratory began in April this year.

This expansion, which is expected to be completed by December 2021, will double the capacity and improve turnaround time of our current operations - ensuring that we can continue to provide a best-in-class service for all our clients.

Our laboratory in Spijkenisse, located near the port of Rotterdam, already offers a broad range of testing services for the metals and minerals industry. We perform analyses on non-ferrous and ferrous products such as ores, industrial minerals, concentrates, intermediate products and high purity metals. Our services include, among others, sample preparation, TML/FMP, wet chemistry analysis, XRF, ICP OES, AAS, electrogravimetry and fire assay.

This exciting construction project will allow the team to further improve its global position within the industry. Frans van Croonenborg, SGS Business Manager Natural Resources, Minerals Commodities, Benelux and Germany, commented, 'By continuing to invest in the laboratory's facilities, we are committing to increase our operational excellence - provide our customers with fast and wide-ranging testing services. Our employees are excited about the new facility and SGS's continued commitment to offer the latest technologies to the global industry.'
