CEST is represented at three locations in Austria:

Wiener Neustadt

Our location in Wiener Neustadt, lower Austria offers 1,200 m² of space for offices, laboratories and pilot plants.

In addition to the company management and administration, the research areas corrosion and functional surfaces are located at this location. We are one of the companies of the TfZ, the technology and research centre in Wiener Neustadt. This location also enables us to cooperate closely with other local research institutes and companies.


Our newest location in Vienna is operative since 2021 and houses our advanced “ELSA” surface analysis cluster operated jointly with TU Vienna.

We are able to provide unique insight into the chemical and physical characteristics of a broad range of materials. Available analysis methods are X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). Contact us if you would like to learn more about those techniques.


Our new location in Linz, Stahlstraße, Upper Austria was opened in autumn 2018.
Here the focus is on the research areas of corrosion of functional surfaces. Linz is also home to a pilot plant for corrosion testing and our test laboratory for adhesive bonds. We are located in the middle of the industrial centre of Linz, so that our customers have very short distances to us.
