Materials and Construction Products

Certified Quality

Modern, high-strength, environmentally friendly and ecologically safe materials are the basis of any successful construction project. Whether you are a supplier, a construction contractor, or even the building owner, our employees provide you with support in the inspection and testing of all types of materials. Using test methods derived from mechanical engineering and construction physics, we can conduct material testing for you on a large number of materials. As a result, you receive definitive statements on material properties and their degree of conformity with applicable standards and regulations. With a construction product certification by TÜV Rheinland, you can be certain that your project has a strong foundation.
