TestAmerica Confirmed as the Industry’s Leading Environmental Testing Firm


In the May 2009 edition of the Environmental Laboratory Washington Report, TestAmerica Laboratories, Inc. was identified for the third consecutive year as the industry’s largest provider of environmental analytical services. Surpassing the next largest firms by nearly 4 times as measured by annual revenues, TestAmerica has found a recipe for stability that has helped solidify their position as the market leader in today’s challenging economic climate.

TestAmerica President and CEO, Rachel Brydon Jannetta said, “Now that the matters relative to the merger are well behind us, we have been able to focus on investments in information technology and facilities that have positively improved our service, quality and efficiency. The recent release of TestAmerica’s TotalAccess™ Version 3.6 is one such example. Newly introduced features to our on-line project and data management tool save our clients time, which translates directly to tangible cost savings for them. While others may attempt to control the negative economic conditions through the acquisition of scale, TestAmerica is keenly focused on listening to our clients and delivering the industry leading products and services that the market demands. We believe this recipe works under any economic condition.”

The market study indicated TestAmerica lab sales to be at $277 million in 2008, some $200 million more than the revenues of the second largest firm. These figures do not include revenues attributed to TestAmerica’s Products and Services businesses – QED, EMLab P&K, TestAmerica Drilling and Metco.
