TestAmerica Receives 2011 Environmental Business Journal Business Achievement Award for Industry Leadership


San Diego, Calif. (January 2012) — Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ), a business research publication, which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry*, has honored 50 companies for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2011.

TestAmerica Laboratories, Inc. is pleased to announce that it was chosen to receive the EBJ award for Industry Leadership.

“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.

TestAmerica was recognized for the Ask the Expert Webinar Series, which is designed to provide a forum to share technical expertise with the environmental community and to enhance the knowledge and awareness of the participants in understanding these complex laboratory issues. Additional information on this award can be found on the Environmental Business Journal website at

The 2011 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit X in Coronado, Calif. on March 14-16, 2012. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day event hosted by EBI Inc.
