Retlif’s technical expertise in testing and engineering services provides clients with the means to regulatory or customer imposed conclusions, a value measurable through product acceptance and market access.
Retlif adds expanded Solar Radiation Testing to growing list of testing services. This testing is in high demand for many of today’s military and defense products.
Retlif begins its yearlong 40th anniversary celebration. Founded in 1978 by Walter and Marilyn Poggi, the organization has steadily grown in laboratories, capabilities and geographic reach. “The mission of Retlif on our 40th anniversary is the same as it was in 1978.” Mr. Walter 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.”
Retlif is honored with Long Island IEEE Section Region One Award for being “Friends of the IEEE”. The honor was bestowed for the financial support, meeting space, representatives and years of active participation in the local IEEE.
Retlif becomes the first laboratory to be approved by the U.S. Coast Guard as a sub-lab for the testing of Ballast Waste Management Systems (BWMS).
As a sub-lab Retlif enters into partnerships with NSF and DNV for BWMS system approvals.
Composite Laboratory Takes Shape
In conjunction with the building and completion of the Composites Prototyping Center, the Retlif Composites Testing Laboratory has been completed within the CPC. The new laboratory successfully went through several industry recognized and necessary accreditations from LAB and from NADCAP.
Retlif Wins Major Security Award
Retlif wins a 2014 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award. The Cogswell Award recognizes industrial security excellence. Each year only 26 awards are awarded out of a pool of 13,000 defense contractors. For a medium size company such as RETLIF to win this award is almost unheard of, as the traditional winners are the major defense contractors.
Product Safety Testing Added
Retlif adds a Product Safety testing laboratory within our NY facility. The laboratory has been initially set up to focus on testing in support of the EU CE mark for various product sectors.
NC Office Relocates
The NC office has relocated to a 2000 Sq. Ft. industrial “condo” type space. The space consists of five individual spaces and one large 1000 Sq. Ft. “open area”. Plans are for the location to be built out as a pre-compliance EMC laboratory.
Retlif enters an agreement with the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT) to help develop a Composite Technology Center.
Retlif is awarded the Department of Transportation (DOT) contract to be the sole U.S. testing laboratory for EMI testing of Alcohol Detection Interlock Devices.
