Our history

  • RST GmbH was founded on 1 April 2003 as the Bombardier Transportation group spun off its quality assurance testing laboratories.
  • Work at two locations. The fatigue laboratory and the fire test laboratory were at Berlin Grünau, and the environmental, materials, and calibration laboratory was at Hennigsdorf.
  • In 2006, the fatigue laboratory was sold to IMA Materialforschung und Anwendungstechnik GmbH in Dresden, and the fire test laboratory was moved to the extra space in Philipp-Pforr-Straße in Hennigsdorf.
  • The fire test laboratory was expanded step-by-step, as was environmental and special testing at the Philipp-Pforr-Straße location in Hennigsdorf.
  • In 2009, the calibration laboratory was sold to Exova METECH GmbH. RST GmbH narrowed its focus to environmental, fire, and materials testing.
  • In April 2014, the three laboratories, which had hitherto been separate, were consolidated at the new company location at Walter-Kleinow-Ring 7 in Hennigsdorf.
