Intertek hosted a formal grand opening event at its new testing laboratory in Lake Forest, CA. The new lab expands the company's footprint from 30,000 square feet to 80,000 square feet of office and laboratory space.
The expansion is designed to provide for faster and more efficient product testing services for manufacturers of home appliances and electronics, medical equipment, solar products, lighting, and IT products.
New capabilities have been added for Lighting Performance testing, including a goniophotometer room, a 3-meter and 2-meter sphere, and photo-biological testing. Hazardous Locations testing has also been added, concentrating initially on Class 1 Division 2 Protection and Explosion Proof, with plans to add Intrinsically Safe testing and certification in the future. The new lab also features an expanded medical devices testing laboratory, adding new testing standards to its scope of capability as well as more equipment and engineers to reduce turnaround time of customers’ projects.
