Exova to create 23,000ft2 corrosion centre in Dudley

Exova is to invest £3m in creating a corrosion centre based in Dudley, which will be fully operational by May 2013 and will service increasing global demand.

The facility, which will be located from its existing premises to a 23,000ft2 purpose-designed centre, will deliver an increase in autoclave capacity, routine corrosion testing, slow rate strain and full ring testing.

The investment also sees the recruitment of an additional 10 corrosion experts and the creation of the Exova Academy.
