Mumbai, February 06, 2008: Underwriters Laboratories,(UL) one of the world’s largest certification organizations, today announced that it has qualified and accredited the in-house laboratory of Elantas Beck, the Indian affiliate of the Atlanta Group of Germany. The laboratory has been set up at Pune-Pimpri plant. This is the 1st lab in India to qualify to test Magnet Wires and Insulation Systems.

Both, UL India and Elantas Beck India Limited (EBIL) are pleased to announce Inauguration of UL Accredited In-house Laboratory at EBIL’s Pimpri Works in Pune on January 23, 2008.  On this occasion, Dr Mathias L Wolfgruber, CEO, ALTANA AG and Dr Wolfgang Schutt, President, Electrical Insulation Division, ALTANA AG will also be present.

Based on this accreditation, Elantas Beck will now be able to test their products for electrical insulation systems to globally accepted UL standards. Elantas Beck develops, produces and sells products such as impregnation resins, sealing compounds and casting resins which are used in electric motors, transformers, generators, capacitors, sensors and electric modules. These electrical and electronic devises can be found in household appliances, automotive applications, television sets, generators and lighting.

Says, R. A Venkitachalam, Vice President & Managing Director, UL India,'UL is proud to partner with Elantas Beck in qualifying this test facility in India. Not only does this add to our existing test facilities, but it will also decrease the turnaround times that customers expect for testing.'

Adds, M. Tandon, Managing Director, EBIL, 'We hope to further develop this lab so we can expand its scope to include testing not only for us, but also for our customers. Till now we had to send samples to other UL offices in Taiwan and the US, but we will now be able to shorten our development cycles by doing testing locally in India.'

UL’s Client Test Data program (CTDP) gives manufacturers better control of the UL testing process of their products by doing the tests themselves. Under the program, Elantas Beck has set up its own testing facility. To qualify their facility as CTDP lab, Elantas Beck used the expertise of UL’s in-house expert’s assistance to demonstrate that their physical resources, equipment, environment and qualified people meet UL’s safety and quality procedures and standards.
