Retlif Testing Laboratories celebrating 40 years

Posted on April 18, 2018

Retlif Testing Laboratories is celebrating its 40th year of operations, which will be marked with recognition events throughout 2018. In conjunction with its milestone anniversary, Retlif President Walter Poggi announced expanded ballast wastewater testing to reduce risks associated with the spread of aquatic invasive species in U.S. coastal waters, lakes and rivers, as well as expanded nuclear RS-105 EMP testing services. Poggi also reaffirmed the company’s pledge to uphold the highly-personalized service that has been the hallmark of the organization since its inception.

Founded in 1978 by Walter and Marilyn Poggi, Retlif provides EMC/EMI and environmental simulation testing services, approvals, and certifications to clients within diverse industries including rail and transportation.

A globally recognized testing industry leader, the company expanded from humble beginnings at Flowerfield (St. James, N.Y.) to multiple locations, including its state-of-the-industry HQ and testing facility in Ronkonkoma, N.Y. Retlif’s strategic growth plan has enabled expansion through key geographic acquisitions, now including laboratories in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, as well as a regulatory office in Washington DC.

Retlif’s expansion and success stems from its cross-industry focus, continual investment in leading edge equipment and technologies, along with its continual education and training of engineers and technicians.

“The mission of Retlif on our 40th anniversary is the same as it was in 1978.” Poggi stated. “We are strategically focused not only on the results of our testing, but also on product approvals and the expansion of our clients’ marketplaces regardless of product or industry.”
