National Technical Systems Acquires Canadian Telecommunications Lab

Published: Sunday, August 22, 2004 - 22:00

National Technical Systems Corp. recently purchased a world-class telecommunications product testing laboratory in Calgary, Canada. It’s the company’s third testing facility abroad.

The 14,000 sq. ft. lab includes state-of-the-art chambers, test equipment and instrumentation, and is equipped for advanced radio testing and certification of wireless products, product safety and mechanics.

“Although this laboratory is presently small compared to other NTS operations, it represents a key milestone in our strategic global expansion plan to acquire additional international laboratories that allow us to market our services globally,” says Jack Lin, NTS chairman and CEO. “It also compliments our expanding services and technology in wireless product certification testing.”

The laboratory has both 3 m and 10 m ambient-free chamber with customized measurement systems. It’s accredited to ISO 17025 by the Standards Council of Canada and has numerous global agency approvals. NTS reports that the addition means the company, which provides quality, conformance and certification testing, can now offer convenient services to companies based in Canada and the northern United States.
