With prior experience in the areas of high-performance lubricants (oils and greases) testing and specialty pharmaceutical manufacturing, the brothers applied their combined knowledge and abilities to the physical and chemical testing of high-performance specialty lubricants.
Using only their private assets, with no government backed loans or outside investors, the brothers recognized the path to success lay in using their own hard work and skills to build the company from the ground up.
After initially leasing industrial space to get started, a five acre industrial lot in Lafayette was purchased and construction began. Acting as their own “construction company”, the laboratory was built as a fully climate controlled environment ideally suited to the company’s needs.
Although this hands-on approach may have been more labor intensive and time consuming, it provided intimate detail over the laboratory design as well as cost saving benefits which could then be devoted to additional testing equipment and expansion of testing capabilities and personnel.
Currently, with a staff of fifteen employees, the company now offers a wide range of testing services to ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 standards and a quality of performance that is unparalleled in the lubricants testing field.
