We have customers around the world representing a wide variety of organisations with links to civil engineering. They range from universities through commercial soil testing consultancies to transport research laboratories.

Our equipment has helped to ensure the longevity and safety of major constructions including:

  • London’s Canary Wharf, Millennium Dome and Jubilee Line tube extension
  • Malaysia’s iconic Petronas Twin Towers
  • and Dubai’s Palm Islands.

Over the years we’ve accrued a wealth of expertise and experience that we can now apply to helping you.

Here are two examples of our work…

Coffey Information

In 2011, leading Australian materials testing consultancy, Coffey Information, contacted our local agent regarding updating their lab equipment.

They already had some of our triaxial equipment at one of their labs in Adelaide, however they were also considering two other suppliers. After a rigorous selection process, including a live demo of our equipment, they selected VJ Tech and commissioned us initially to supply new equipment for three of their labs on Australia’s west coast.

To help them make the most of our equipment, that December we ran a theoretical and practical course in Sydney for technicians from five of Coffey Information’s Australian laboratories.

Afterwards Technology Manager Alan Cocks commented, “This is one of the best courses of this type I have ever seen. The people taking part were totally absorbed, as can be seen from the photograph.

“I believe this week is the basis of a new era and greatly expanded expertise in specialised soil testing for Coffey Information.”

We have since provided triaxial, shear and consolidation testing equipment for several other Coffey Information labs in Australia and New Zealand.

Fugro World Wide

We have been preferred suppliers of soil testing equipment for this international geoscience, survey and geotechnical services company since the 1990s. In fact Fugro were our very first customer. We’ve since supplied equipment to their laboratories in the UK, the Netherlands, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Russia and Azerbaijan.

Most recently one of their UK subsidiaries, Fugro Engineering Services, contacted us about ordering equipment for a new effective stress laboratory.

Our CEO, Nathan Vimalan, personally supervised the set-up of the first batch of new equipment. Our technical team then worked closely with them to test then migrate to the latest CLISP Studio software.

We have since provided additional bespoke equipment for the new lab, enabling them to carry out tests on samples of non-standard diameters.

The new lab has now received UKAS accreditation for consolidated undrained and consolidated drained triaxial testing and permeability testing.

“The newly equipped laboratory received favourable comments from the UKAS assessor,” said Laboratory Manager John Ashworth. “The technical support from the VJ Tech team has been very good and any queries or problems have been dealt with in a timely manner. VJ Tech continue to supply us with consumables and, as they hold most items in stock, we can be confident of prompt delivery.”
