TestAmerica acquires CH2M Hill Applied Sciences Laboratory

TestAmerica Laboratories has acquired the assets of CH2M Hill Applied Sciences Laboratory’s (ASL) full-service environmental testing laboratory in Corvallis, Oregon, US.

ASL operates a 60,000 foot (6 kilometre) squared facility specially designed for evaluating trace, medium, and high level contaminants in a variety of environmental matrices.

ASL lab staff, including its director, senior scientists, project managers, and chemists, will continue to serve their clients on a business-as-usual basis, now as part of the TestAmerica network.

“ASL’s solution-based services and specialty capabilities perfectly mirror TestAmerica’s technical leadership brand, and expand our company footprint on the West Coast. This is a milestone in our decades-old partnership with CH2M, and we see ASL closely fitting into our technical leadership culture,” said TestAmerica president and chief executive, Rachel Brydon Jannetta.

ASL supports a broad range of capabilities including low level metals analyses, aquatic toxicity, air toxics, and treatability and process engineering studies on sample types from clean water to complex soils.

It maintains stringent accreditations, including NELAP (US National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Progam) and DoD ELAP (US Department of Defense Accreditation Program).
