Retlif Testing Laboratories, a leading U.S. independent compliance and testing organization, announced today that it has expanded with a new location in Concord, N.C. The new laboratory is in answer to the growing regional need for testing services and is the result of two years of searching for an ideal location.
The new laboratory is initially offering pre-compliance evaluation Electromagnetic Interference/Electromagnetic Compatibility services, including EMI, EMC, Lightning testing and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). The EMI test standard for the Department of Defense is MIL-STD-461, while the EMI test standard for the Commercial Aviation Industry is RTCA DO-160. Other available services include ESS regulatory consulting and documentation, as well as extensive engineering services.
“We’re certainly pleased to have a presence in the Tar Heel State,” said Retlif Executive VP Bill Hayes, "especially one that provides excellent access to aerospace, avionics, defense, maritime and consumer products manufacturers. From this centralized location we also expect to provide services to customers in South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia."
Retlif President Walter Poggi commented “Our game plan is to expand our regional commitment by expanding our EMI services similar to those currently available in our fully equipped New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania laboratories. And with teleconferencing, our Concord staff can fully manage each project even when formal testing is being performed at other Retlif locations.”
