Reliable Solutions In a Post-Pandemic World

Testing Lab 1

The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything about business and the way products reach consumers. What hasn’t changed is the need for fast, reliable package testing results before anything leaves the warehouse.

More than two years after the pandemic began, many companies are still feeling the strains of the global supply chain and domestic labor shortages. Even before the pandemic, some plastic and polymer materials were moving out of production to make room for more sustainable packaging options like coated paper and compostable packaging. Whether common packaging materials are in short supply or simply aren’t available anymore, companies are sourcing new materials that still maintain the shelf life and integrity of their products.

When exploring new or alternate materials for packaging, companies need support testing those materials to ensure they’ll still meet industry standards. Sometimes, this process needs to happen quickly to move to production. There’s no time to waste when it comes to ensuring your packaging will protect products from start to finish.

Our Team of World-Class Specialists

Filling a production gap without disrupting customers and your supply chain takes fast action, and we’re here to help ensure any changes are implemented smoothly in a variety of ways. Whether companies need reliable testing done quickly to make urgent manufacturing changes or they already have our permeation equipment but need additional support, we’re positioned to offer support and handle overflow testing. We can also manage third-party verification to help ensure clients are living up to the quality standards set by their respective industries and customers.
