Welcome to VicTesting

Welcome to the new website of Victorian Testing and Inspection Services. Founded in 2008, we’re proudly Australian owned and operated.

We’re a support service to the power, oil and gas, construction and fabrication industries, providing a range of mechanical and metallurgical inspection and testing services as required.

Our broad range of services includes:

  • testing of PE/HDPE poly welds and electrofusion sockets
  • pressure vessel inspections
  • weld procedure development, testing and qualification
  • welder qualifications
  • metallurgical services and failure analysis
  • non-destructive testing.

In 2012 we expanded into poly pipe testing – a huge growth area – and, under director Andrew Joiner, we’ve also extended our reach geographically.

We now operate from three sites: Morwell in the Latrobe Valley and the original home of Victorian Testing and Inspection Services; VTS Townsville, which we opened in 2013 and operate as Queensland Testing Services; and Spotswood’s MecTest Laboratories, which we acquired in 2015.

Through affiliation with other specialised quality organisations, we are able to offer a wide range of services throughout Australia and South East Asia.

We’re National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited and have implemented the following systems to ensure compliance with Australian and international standards:

  • Quality System, meeting the requirements of ISO 17025 and 9001
  • OH&S Management System, meeting requirements of AS4801
  • Environmental Management System, meeting requirements of ISO 14001.

For all our services, quality, impartiality and independence are key deliverables, as is customer focus, hence our mission statement:

“To ensure accurate and timely testing and inspection services and to continuously meet or exceed customer expectations through exceptional service.”

Which means we’re on the ball when it comes to prompt delivery of all results and written reports … in short: we’re here to look after you!

VicTesting takes its trade to Melbourne’s west

Well, we’re pretty chuffed to announce that Victorian Testing and Inspection services has acquired MecTest Laboratories Pty Ltd, based in South Kingsville, in Melbourne’s west.

MecTest is a specialist testing business similar to VicTest that provides specialist services in the field of mechanical and metallurgical testing. It caters to the manufacturing, fabrication, welding, pipe, forging, automotive, rail, structural and import industries.

It was established in 2009 and has many years experience associated with research facilities and commercial testing companies.

Bringing MecTest into the fold means Victorian Testing and Inspection Services, which also operates as Queensland Testing Services in our sunny state, now operates from three sites.

“It means we can service the western suburbs of Melbourne to a greater extent,” owner Andrew Joiner says.

“Previously we’ve had a lot of work out of Melbourne but mostly it’s been from the eastern suburbs due to our location in the Latrobe Valley.

“We’ll really be able to cater to the construction, water and energy businesses in Melbourne’s west and beyond, and we look forward to making some new contacts and really growing the business in that region.”

MecTest’s range of services includes:

  • Tensile testing
  • Impact testing
  • Hardness testing
  • Metallurgical investigations
  • Pressure Vessel Inspection
