Testing Laboratories

The Testing Laboratories of MICHAEL M. TSONTOS SA are well-equipped and staffed with personnel with many years of experience in the field and verified by International standards accreditation. Equipment and know-how enable material tests to be carried out:

  • Soil – aggregates
  • Concrete
  • Asphalt

The Testing Laboratories provide adequate and properly designed spaces for the reception and maintenance of the samples and the execution of the tests. The venues are complemented by corresponding office spaces, which are used by the staff of the Laboratory to perform their administrative tasks.

The implements and apparatuses of the Testing Laboratory of MICHAEL M. TSONTOS SA, used for testing and other auxiliary equipment and installations, have been selected to meet the requirements of applicable standards and specifications and at the same time to ensure required environmental and other conditions for the proper and intact process of the tests and the protection of the health and safety of the Laboratory staff.

The entire operating procedures of the Testing Laboratories are integrated into the Quality Management System of the Company and are certified by ISO 9001:2015 by the Certification Body TUV NORD CERT.
