Testing

Quick-response and detailed feedback testing

Our ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited Development Testing Lab is specifically tailored to the R&D/Quality departments needs of the automotive OEMs and suppliers. ALTRAN is a testing partner able to develop the method, setup and jigs in-house, and give a detailed real-time feedback about the running tests results.
