Bureau Veritas Opens New Laboratory in China

ZHENJIANG (Jiangsu), China – Leading oil analysis provider Bureau Veritas, recently dedicated the eighth laboratory in its global expansion with an opening ceremony and facility tour. Known as KCA (KYB China Bureau Veritas), the new laboratory is located in the city of Zhenjiang (Jiangsu) and is Bureau Veritas’ second joint venture partnership with KYB Co., Ltd.

“China is an exciting country that presents great opportunity,” said Bureau Veritas CEO Michael Forgeron. “We look forward to embracing that opportunity through strong, mutually beneficial relationships with the companies that drive this country’s vibrant economy.”

The new 1,000 square meter testing facility provides oil analysis services to both the industrial and heavy duty equipment markets. KCA will support Chinese businesses new to the oil analysis industry as well as the company’s existing multi-national customers with operations in China. The laboratory expects to employ a staff of 45 by the end of the first year of operation.

According to Forgeron, oil analysis is an extremely effective way to manage equipment reliability and productivity in any industry – construction, mining, coal-fired and nuclear power stations and manufacturing and chemical processing plants.

“Using oil analysis, KCA customers will be able to identify trends in wear and contamination and monitor changes in the physical properties of lubricants,” Forgeron said. “This allows laboratory personnel to pinpoint problems in their earliest stages before they become major catastrophic failures.”

Laboratory data analysts can then make informed maintenance recommendations that can improve machinery reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs and significantly extend equipment life. Customers can easily access test results and manage their oil analysis programs through LOAMS – Bureau Veritas’ cloud-based, multi-lingual Lube Oil Analysis Management System.
