Gateway Materials Test Center (GMTC) was created in response to local industry requests for a test facility that could perform composite and textile testing in close proximity. They wanted quick turnaround time and easy access for witnessed tests. Located in Research Facility One at Gateway’s South Campus in Greensboro, NC, the GMTC is just minutes from the Piedmont Triad Airport, a FedEx hub.

GMTC is a program of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering of North Carolina A&T State University and University of North Carolina at Greensboro (JSNN) and administered by Gateway University Research Park. GMTC offers a wide range of materials testing, specializing in composites. GMTC is ISO 17025 accredited.
