We believe in thoughtful reporting practices – you’ll get test reports with rapid and accurate results, that are straightforward and easily read

Our failure analysis test reports are documented with photographs that chronicle each step of the project as well as all critical evidence that supports the root cause conclusions. We are known for providing concise statements concerning the cause of the failure and what also was not found. It is important to answer the questions that your client’s customer is asking. This can put closure to the back and forth dialogue of the root cause. We also offer video conference capability to review the report draft, ensure all background is accurate, all your questions are answered and you accept the final product. These conferences allow all members of the project to provide input and correspondence. Our goal is to provide a complete and accurate analysis of your material with a clear and concise conclusion. Our engineering staff will help you toward investigative resolution on your failure analysis.
