In light of the fact that ACB Betons is a subsidiary of the A.C.B Group, the laboratory meets a constant demand for the testing of road building materials. A second important function of the laboratory is to test the physical and mechanical properties of minerals and soil required for road building, which is a service that it provides to Latvia’s road and bridge building companies.

In order to improve the quality of testing of building materials, as well as to clients’ need for testing services conducted at an accredited laboratory, at the start of 2012 the laboratory’s accreditation process was commenced.
