Owner/ Director

Metlabs owner and director Kris Townend has worked in the inspection industry for more than 20 years, specialising in non-destructive testing.

Kris started as a technical assistant, then progressed through to technician, senior technician and then technical officer.

“I have worked on numerous sites and locations throughout Western Australia as well as inter-state. I have worked on construction sites, mine sites, on maintenance programs as well as government and defence force projects,” Kris says.

In late 2009, he decided it was time to start his own business. The groundwork (intensive market research and planning) was complete by February 2010  and Metlabs Australia Pty Ltd opened for business.

The West Australian business community has been very welcoming.

Kris adds: “We welcome you to our company and look forward to working with you to build a prosperous and very useful partnership.”
