As one of the largest full-service environmental testing companies in the U.S., SGS Accutest remains consistent in its commitment to provide the most stringent quality standards in the environmental testing industry, the best client service, and impeccable results at a competitive price.
From its founding in 1956, SGS Accutest has continued to provide its core service, environmental testing, and has grown through laboratory acquisitions and most recently its integration as an SGS company. SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.
“Joining SGS has provided SGS Accutest with long-term stability, opportunities for growth and most importantly more quality services for our clients”, Joe Unangst, Vice President of U.S. Environment, Health & Safety at SGS, said. “SGS Accutest’s quality model and investment in continuous quality improvement are in total synch with the high standards of SGS.
