Our specialty is providing custom, turnkey structural testing solutions to solve our customers certification needs. Typically, we initially interface with the customer to define test requirements and objectives. We then prepare the certification test plan and test rig drawings/models. After customer concurrence, we fabricate the test setup and loading apparatus, install the test article, and obtain the necessary conformity inspections. The test is performed per the test plan with required witnesses and observers. Test results and data are electronically captured and delivered to the customer with a test results report.  With close to a thousand tests performed over the last 22 years, we have become quite efficient at this and can provide our services at a competitive price and schedule.
