Recap of APICS NoCo’s March Stay Connected Tour & Happy Hour at Element Materials Technology

Our Stay Connected events happen once a month and are a chance for supply chain professionals to visit other facilities and learn from their methods. We get to meet leadership in these companies and then end with a networking happy hour. Join us next time for the education as well as the fun!


Element is a global platform of laboratories with Engaged Experts specializing in materials testing and product qualification testing in industries where failure is not an option.


Bob Cone, Operations Manager, and his team of engineering experts lead us through an excellent tour of Element Materials Technology. Element is one of the world’s largest material testing and product qualification testing company, working in industries from aerospace to oil and gas.


At their Longmont facility, they had every gadget you could imagine to do shake, rattle and roll testing. They even had UV testing to see how products would hold up when exposed to harsh light and weather conditions outside.

"Our Vision is to be the best independent materials and product qualification testing partner in the world providing the highest quality results upon which our customers can depend."



They were even able to have a live simulation of what a crash or quick stop would do to a product while we were there! It was really impressive to see the plethora of capabilities they had in Longmont.

"We exist to make certain that the materials and products that we test and certify are safe, quality, compliant and fit for purpose in those industries we serve, where failure is simply not an option."



After working up an appetite we headed over to Longmont’s finest Pumphouse Restaurant and Brewery for a bit of food and a couple of brews. Another great tour in the books! Please join us for the next one!
