Failure Analysts & Material Consultants

The principals and consultants at Invetech have over 50 years combined experience in the areas of engineering evaluations and failure analysis. As these activities frequently require the use of a “team” approach to problem solving, Invetech integrates associates from various disciplines together with its in-house capabilities to ensure that the appropriate resources are assembled to address the problem at hand. Alternatively, Invetech can blend its own expertise and facilities into a previously existing team to ensure that the available interactive and synergistic opportunities are maximized.
