About Us


Express Testing was conceived and founded in 2001 on the premise that the testing and evaluation of materials and assemblies should be treated with the attention and urgency that is warranted by the customers' requirements.     We routinely begin evaluations and tests within hours of the receipt of test samples and we operate seven days a week when an aggressive schedule is needed to meet customer requirements.
