ALS expands Life Sciences business in USA
TLI was founded in 1931 by Dr. Rodger Truesdail and has operated continuously for over 85 years. With current best lab practices in mind, they recently relocated to state-of-the-art 17,000 sq. ft. facility in the greater Los Angeles area. TLI maintains a staff of 45 highly qualified technical professionals with extensive knowledge in four distinct operating sectors—Drug Testing, Environmental Testing, Consumer Plumbing Product Certification, and Nutritional Testing. According to Randy Gates, Chief Operating Officer for Truesdail Laboratories, “TLI will add unique services to the ALS global network with a strategic location for environmental testing in Southern California. Together, we will broaden our testing solutions delivering substantial value to existing and new customers.”
Truesdail Laboratories’ motto of “Excellence in Independent Testing” providing the highest quality data within industry leading turnaround time resonates with the values of ALS. TLI has been able to combine speed with stringent quality control to become one of the most reliable testing providers in the USA. “The acquisition of Truesdail supports our dedication to the values of quality, integrity, reliability and innovation which ensure we deliver the highest level of customer service,” said Jim Klippel, ALS General Manager of Life Sciences in the USA. “I am very pleased to welcome TLI and their employees to the ALS team.”
ALS is excited about the acquisition of Truesdail and the expansion of geographic positioning specific to the needs of our clients.
This step will serve to solidify the position of ALS as a world leader in the provision of globally distributed analytical testing and inspection services.
