Surface Performance have just completed the move to our new testing laboratory premises in London.
The new testing laboratory will specialise in the inspection, R&D and testing of sports surfaces. The lab is fully equipped with a full suite of specialist equipment that has been supplied by our partner, Deltec Metaal.
We look forward to working from our new HQ and growing the laboratory testing aspect of our business.
