TestAmerica Expanding Service into Canada


TestAmerica has expanded its service reach into Canada under the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). Through this internationally recognized arrangement, TestAmerica laboratories in Nashville, Tennessee and Savannah, Georgia are now both qualified to provide environmental testing support for Canadian environmental interests.

Currently, approvals for these two facilities have been granted by the Canadian Provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta, as well as in the Northwest Territories and The Yukon. Near term expansion is planned for the remaining Canadian Provinces and Territories. The Nashville and Savannah laboratories are approved to perform a wide-range of test applications in these regions. Project coordination and logistical support is made easy with TestAmerica maintaining required USDA foreign soil import permits, in addition to offering bilingual customer service support for TestAmerica’s French speaking clients.

“A formal expansion into the Canadian market was a logical next step in our international support plans. TestAmerica has a long service history to clients in Central and South America, the Pacific Rim and Southeast Asia. Demand finally reached a point where this expansion made good economic sense for TestAmerica and it gives us the ability to better serve our clients with interests north of the border,” added Johnny Mitchell, Lab Director at TestAmerica’s Nashville Laboratory.
