Other articles

On March 25th, 1961, the Institute was founded, and our remarkable history has begun.

Today we are celebrating 60 years of applied research, innovative solutions, and new services. We are celebrating 60 years of tradition, knowledge, innovativeness, and success. 

But we are also celebrating all the amazing people who marked our history and contributing to creating a better future. Throughout all these years our associates have been our greatest strength. It is their commitment that has helped us to achieve our standard of excellence in everything we do.

Over the past 60 years, we have cultivated the fundamental values on which the Institute rests: 

  • Reliability – inherent to all we do, it helped us to build trust with our partners;
  • Excellence – we are constantly making improvements and forecasting challenges to be the best;
  • Tradition – six decades of experience in applied research and laboratory testing are the basis for a stable and successful business in the future;
  • Knowledge – our activities are based on the knowledge and skills of our employees;
  • Responsibility – we are highly aware of the social and environmental impacts of our actions, so we take the greatest possible care of social responsibility, environmental protection, and occupational health and safety.

The crucial part of our past, present, and future are and will be our partners. They are the force that motivates us to strive forward. While celebrating this very special occasion we want to thank you all for supporting us over the last 60 years.

Looking back on our history, we are grateful and satisfied with everything we have achieved and created. We are looking forward to creating an even better, innovative, and more efficient future with all of you together.
