We mitigate risk to deliver the highest possible end product.

Our Philosophy

To maintain high technical excellence and proactive communication with all parties to mitigate client risk and deliver the best possible product.

Who we are

We are a full spectrum testing and inspection services agency— and because this is our only service, it is our expertise. We work hard with our clients to find the most economical solution for their challenges, and no project is too large or complex for our staff to handle. We offer an unparalleled combination of education, experience, and expertise that allow us to deliver superior services for our clients.

In 2004, consulting firm DOWL established an engineering office and materials testing laboratory in Lander, Wyoming. In 2017, three long-time DOWL managers and lead materials engineers purchased the laboratories, equipment, and contracts from DOWL—and Element Materials Testing was born. We felt that materials testing and inspection belong in an engineering firm that focuses solely on the construction phase of a project.

Our key staff has over 40 years of combined experience in the materials testing industry and has worked on wide variety of projects. We participate in every aspect of a project to assure a quality product from the very beginning until the very end.

Our mission

We believe in being the best in the business which includes working with the best in the business. We believe being the best extends to how we treat our clients—we strive to find the most cost effective and timely solutions available on the market without compromising detail or quality.

We think superior materials testing is more than just performing tests, it is a philosophy that combines the technical aspects of engineering with on-demand materials testing. We pride ourselves on helping our community mitigate risks by providing and maintaining the quality of materials and care. 

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical practices, client services, accuracy, and communication. We believe this, our philosophy, expertise, and work ethic makes us stand out from the crowd, and why our clients continue to do business with us.
