Brisbane Met Lab At A Glance

We are a small team of metallurgical test work specialists ensuring you have access to rapid, affordable, professional and confidential test work. Any resemblance to the caricatures below is purely coincidental. We were previously known as Nagrom Brisbane Labs to assist a previous co-marketing agreement with Nagrom Perth.  However, now with over three years operating under our belt, 84 different projects undertaken and clients both very large and very small, we are pretty sure we must be doing something right.  So, if you are looking for testwork services that are quick, affordable and with the highest technical oversight, please contact us.
