NTS Longmont Achieves ISTA Laboratory Certification for Packaging Testing
Anaheim, CA (April 11, 2019). National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), the leader in qualification testing, inspection, and certification solutions in North America, is pleased to announce that its laboratory in Longmont, Colorado, achieved ISTA Laboratory Certification. The certification ensures packages undergo rigorous testing to protect against shock, vibration, and atmospheric hazards.
“The ISTA certification is a testament to NTS’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards for packaging testing,” said Michael Graham, General Manager at NTS Longmont. The Longmont facility joins several NTS locations, including NTS Chicago, NTS Orlando, NTS Silicon Valley, and NTS Boxborough, as robust laboratories with ISTA Certification.
The ISTA Laboratory Certification is important for conducting tests that reduce the risk of package damage and eliminating trial and error shipping practices. “We’re excited to use NTS to ensure the integrity of our packages,” said Drea Michaelis of Preferred Packaging Products, a new NTS customer. “Using a trusted name like NTS provides assurance that our packages will reach end users in good shape.” With 28 labs in North America, including several ISTA certified locations, NTS provides customers with a one-stop shop for advanced product and package testing services. Michael Graham embraces the new addition to his state-of-the-art laboratory. “We continue to enhance the ways we help our customers—and obtaining ISTA certification for product package testing is another step in offering the most comprehensive testing platform in the United States.”
