Our Customers Say:

“I had an urgent request today for hardness testing to be performed by an independent lab to support our own testing for our customer and the end user. Your team was very accommodating as we received the results prior to a critical meeting. I greatly appreciate LTI’s efforts for the rapid turnaround!”
