Testing Laboratories

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry provide engineering, quality control, and certification services in a variety of industries.

Services include chemical, nondestructive, mechanical, and electrical testing as well as calibration testing, thermal testing, and assaying. Companies build facilities to simulate various environments according to temperature, altitude, humidity, sunshine, dust, or explosive atmosphere. Items tested include high-technology products,...
