Safety and quality, two of the most critical aspects in engineering and allied industries globally can only be upheld by implementing pertinent testing processes. A widely employed proactive approach utilized for ensuring quality of products and/or systems is Non Destructive Testing (NDT/NDE). The process through which materials, components or assemblies are inspected, tested and evaluated to check discontinuities or differences in characteristics without destroying its physical & chemical properties and service abilities has gained immense traction in India and globally. According to a Non-Destructive Testing and Inspection report by MarketsandMarkets, the industry is slated to grow at a CAGR of 7.24 percent from 2018 to 2024 and be worth a whopping $12.6 billion by 2014.

Building on the huge potential of the NDT market is Godavari Technical Services (GTS), a pioneer in rendering NDT services to various segments of the engineering industry such as mechanical, petroleum, electrical, aeronautical and automobile, among others.
