In 1860 Christer Peter Sandberg arrived in London from Stockholm. On behalf of the Swedish State Railways he was inspecting rails manufactured in England for use in Sweden. Christer Peter set up his materials consultancy practice in London. His great grandson Neil Sandberg is the present Senior Partner. The firm's head office is situated at 40 Grosvenor Gardens, London, SW1, where it has been since 1919. Other laboratory sites are at Clapham and Kings Cross, both in London. These sites operate UKAS accredited laboratories. Sandberg also holds Quality Management accreditation to BS EN ISO 9001.
