Minneapolis, Minn., - July 21, 2008 Despatch Industries is proud to announce the recent sale of twenty laboratory testing ovens to a world-leading company in product safety certification. This company provides thermal property testing for different consumer and industrial products and has recently opened a new facility in China featuring a 2000 square meter testing lab.

"Our customer will be utilizing these ovens to test the thermal properties of certain products and devices for safety and durability," says Steve Eul, Despatch Sales. "We were able to design and engineer a custom oven to meet our customer's very specific testing needs."

The custom lab ovens comply with ASTM specifications and have D5423-93 designation. Despatch was also able to meet the Type II oven specifications that competing manufacturers could not. Engineering, project management and service teams worked together in the field, making several visits to the facility to ensure all necessary requirements were met.

Safety certification and testing for many Chinese manufactured products was previously done in the United States. Now, with this new facility, the same testing can be performed in China and will be more convenient and time efficient for product manufacturers.

"Standards for safety are essential to helping ensure public safety and confidence, reduce costs and improve quality and reliability," says Steve Eul. "It is great to see that China is taking steps to create a safer environment for consumers by investing in local testing and certification."

Since its inception in 1902, Despatch Industries has worked at the forefront of thermal processing technology. Building on the company's foundation of expertise in engineering and manufacturing, Despatch has grown to become a global supplier of innovative equipment in some of the world's most sophisticated industries, including: photovoltaic energy, carbon fiber materials, medical devices and electronic components.
