NTS Expands Testing Services in Colorado
NTS Now Offers Environmental and Dynamics Testing including Temperature, Altitude, Vibration, Shock, and many other Capabilities
Longmont, CO National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), the leading independent provider of environmental simulation testing, inspection, and certification solutions in the United States, has recently acquired the test equipment assets for an additional facility in Longmont, Colorado. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The new facility will be known as NTS Longmont West and is located eight miles from the existing NTS Longmont EMC laboratory (formerly EMC Integrity). Combined, these two facilities uniquely fulfill the regions need for a single resource for both environmental/dynamics and EMC/EMI testing.
The NTS Longmont West capabilities include independent and combined environments covering testing categories such as thermal cycling and shock, humidity, altitude, overpressure, blowing rain, vibration, shock, HALT, acceleration, and package testing. Combined temperature and humidity capabilities include walk-in and drive-in, man rated chambers allowing the evaluation of larger equipment and systems. Vibration capabilities include high acceleration and displacement electrodynamic as well as servo hydraulic shakers. Also available are a variant of package testing systems including drop shock towers and sled (also capable of evaluating components for aircraft), bounce, transportation vibration, and impact.
“We are pleased and excited to be able to offer our Colorado region clients these new services,” stated Vicki Panhuise, CEO of NTS. “This full-service environmental lab perfectly complements the EMC expertise in our existing Longmont facility.”
A ribbon cutting and open house are scheduled for September 30, 2016.
NTS is a portfolio company of Los Angeles-based Aurora Capital Group.
