Our Daimler Class 'A' Certification Acknowledging ATS as an Approved Lab

Daimler Class 'A' Materials Testing Lab

Applied Technical Services has attained the coveted distinction of Daimler Class ‘A’ materials testing lab. A great deal of hard work and preparation went into securing this recognition, which ATS happily undertook to benefit our clients; achieving this certification ensures that parts manufacturers can opt to receive testing and analysis services approved by esteemed automaker Daimler AG.

The Class ‘A’ certification holds significance in the automotive industry because it is difficult to achieve by nature of its demanding requirements.


First, our lab had to attain ISO 17025 (A2LA) accreditation on each of the methods for which we wanted Daimler to acknowledge us. The rigor and effort needed to fulfill Daimler’s prerequisite condition prevent all but the most serious testing labs from eligibility.

Next, our quality assurance team prepared extensively for the auditing process. Approved inspectors conduct this meticulous examination to determine whether our test processes are compliant with relevant Daimler standards.
Finally, ATS technicians displayed competence while conducting the test methods in question according to their Daimler approved standard processes. They performed specified testing on controlled sample materials provided by Daimler and returned evaluations consistent with the standard results auditors were comparing against.
For meeting expectations on all of these criteria, ATS was awarded designation of Daimler Class ‘A’ Approved Laboratory. This achievement not only distinguishes our lab as one specialized to serve the parts manufacturers who supply Daimler AG, it indicates our dedication to providing materials testing services of excellent quality to our clients.
