Through continued investment in innovative technology and streamlining internal processes, CET has launched a Guaranteed 5-Day Turnaround service on a select number of its laboratory tests.
This premium service can be requested by CET’s Construction industry customers on a wide selection of laboratory classification, compaction, asphalt and aggregate tests.
Gary Corrigan, Managing Director of CET Infrastructure, commented: “The testing industry, much like many others in Construction, can be fairly reactive. To some degree, we’ve been part of the herd until now. We recognised that in order to see change in the industry, we needed to change ourselves.
“We’ve invested significantly in our internal processes over the last 12 months and introduced new ways of working to make our labs more efficient. We’ve changed the laboratory layout, workflows, management structure and invested in additional equipment. This, along with our technology advances, means that our service is truly ahead of the competition.”
The introduction of the 5-Day Turnaround service comes after CET’s investment in the Lean Management Process, which is currently being rolled out across its nationwide network of UKAS accredited labs, following a successful pilot at its Harrietsham facility.
Gary continued: “We understand that speed is an important service element to our clients, particularly as delays can have a negative effect to the project. This is why we continue to invest and improve our service offering, exploring new and innovative ways for continual improvement. As a Group, we believe CET continues to lead the industry in technology, as well as service innovation and I’m sure that there will be further developments in the future.”
