Aircraft fluid and debris analyst Spectro Jet-Care relocated its Swiss laboratory earlier this month from its previous location in Basel-area Kaiseraugst to a larger, remodeled facility nearby. According to the UK-based company (Booth L51), the expansion has allowed it to increase its testing portfolio there to match that of its UK and U.S. locations.
“The continued strong growth, in particular of the aviation and industrial business, through our Swiss laboratory has led to the move, enabling us to treble the size of our previous laboratory space,” noted David Glass, managing director of Spectro Oil. “In addition, the development of our UK and U.S. facilities in recent years, and now the Swiss facility, has allowed us to maintain our position as a first-class, independent laboratory on a worldwide basis.”
The new facility, unveiled on May 11 at Landstrasse 23, five minutes from the previous location of Rinaustrasse 452, also provides increased office space and newly created customer areas, which the company claims will allow it to focus on furthering business opportunities in Central Europe. To that end, it has brought on a new business development manager, Hans Czerwinski, who will be based in Germany, and will concentrate his efforts on the region.
Spectro has been in operation for more than four decades and through its analysis of oil life provides early warning of engine problems, allowing customers to secure optimum maintenance cycles and avoid unplanned downtime. Its Kaiseraugst location opened in 2000, and all three laboratories provide testing and calibration under the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 industry standard.
