Our Capabilities

The heart of our business is testing.

We test to see when and if your package or product inside will fail. We also want to know how and why it will fail.

It is our goal to help reduce shipping damage and recommend packaging improvement opportunities.

  • We test to certify that your packaging meets military or federal specifications (HAZMAT packaging requirements.)
  • We test to reduce packaging costs and to optimize the performance of your packaging.
  • We test your packaging and product to your specifications, specific requirements and for the results you want to achieve.
  • We provide the required test data to assist your decision making. This data will help you select packaging materials and internal packaging requirements to reduce stress factors on your product and assist in design improvements.

How do we do this?

Our comprehensive testing enables us to offer a very wide range of standard tests to simulate shipment, handling, dropping, storage and many different climatic conditions.

We utilize our resources to keep your costs down and closely adhere to testing procedures and techniques that exceed standards while maintaining ISO 17025.
