Professional & Accurate Materials Testing & Forensics

Accuracy is our goal at MMR, an employee-owned materials testing, engineering, and consulting firm. Our team of expert chemists and metallurgists offers professional analysis for a range of industries in Boston, Massachusetts, and throughout New England. We are part of the MMR Group,  encompassing three labs with their own strengths under one umbrella. As we specialize in the practical application of testing and quality assessment methods, you can count on us to deliver an accurate, reliable, understandable, timely, and cost-effective report. Metallurgy professor Dr. David Krashes founded MMR in 1961 to share his knowledge with the industry at large. This consulting work on the side developed into three separate labs working together to provide you with all the materials research services you need. No other labs can duplicate the integrity of the services that we provide.
