Retlif Testing Laboratories, an independent leader in EMC and Environmental testing since 1978, has announced a strategic alliance with Acme Testing (Acme, Washington). The arrangement brings Retlif’s wide array of advanced Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Environmental Simulation (ESS) testing as well as extensive engineering capabilities to the Pacific Northwest, specifically the Puget Sound area.
The expansion in combined capacity and capabilities enables Retlif and Acme to service the rising demand from commercial maritime, commercial aviation, homeland security and defense industry sectors.
The Retlif-Acme alliance offers in-house EMI, Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), power line fluctuation, and magnetic effects testing, in addition to EMC site surveys and EMC final compatibility testing. Combined ESS offerings include in-house full classic shock testing capabilities, as well as ballistic and pyrotechnic shock, vibration testing up to 20,000 lbf, salt fog, inclination, temperature, humidity and many more capabilities. In addition, Retlif and Acme also offer vibration site surveys and acoustic noise site surveys.
Retlif President Walter Poggi stated, “This is a great opportunity for Retlif to partner with a respected west coast laboratory. We anticipate transcontinental exchange of services that will jointly increase our market base.”
Acme President and COE Harry Hodes commented, “The alliance enables Acme to offer a wider selection of testing services to customers and prospects in our region and provides greater value for their organizations.”
In addition to Retlif headquarters (Ronkonkoma, NY), other Retlif locations include New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Washington D.C.
