About Exova Defire

In 2017 Exova, one of the world’s leading laboratory-based testing groups, successfully acquired Defire. Defire is a fire engineering consultancy business, and has been providing leading fire safety expertise to Australia’s building and infrastructure sectors for over 15 years. Over this time Defire has built up an excellent reputation for both quality and service. We believe that going forward the combined businesses will offer you, more tangible benefits, and a greater service from our enhanced and expanded organisation. From 15th January 2018, Exova Warringtonfire consultancy and Defire were fully integrated into a single team with dual branding. Both companies will operate as part of Exova Warringtonfire Aus Pty Ltd, trading as Exova Defire.

We also announced during 2017 that Exova had become part of the Element Materials Technology Group, one of the world’s most highly respected materials testing and product qualification testing businesses. As a result, you now have the backing and support of a combined global company, with more than 6,200 employees, operating from 200 laboratories located in more than 30 countries. This exciting move has extended our range of services, creating a truly global offering and broadening our support to customers in both new and existing markets worldwide.
