Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2006/05/31 - Package, product and environmental testing laboratory, DDL Inc, opens an additional environmental testing laboratory to meet increased demand for testing services.
DDL, a leading package, product and environmental testing laboratory, is expanding into a second environmental testing laboratory.
The facility, in Eden Prairie, MN, will act as an overflow as the company expands, allowing the widely recognized thought leaders in the field of package, product and environmental package testing to take on more projects and respond to an increase in demand.
“The new environmental testing laboratory will allow us to take on 25% more environmental testing projects per year,” said John Hart, CEO of DDL Inc. “This also frees up more space in our main testing lab, allowing us to increase the number of other DDL package, product and material testing projects.”
Environmental testing involves exposing a package or product to controlled temperatures and humidity in order to reproduce the conditions that the package/product is expected to survive in its transportation, storage and operating life. After exposure, the package or product is assessed for damage.
“Environmental testing is a very important part of package validation,” said Patrick Nolan, COO of DDL. “DDL uses environmental testing services to determine shelf life and expiration dates for medical devices and other critical applications.”
DDL offers expert package testing, product testing and material testing services including shock testing, vibration testing, tensile testing, leak testing and validation. DDL package testing clients find value through its growing suite of PackServices: PackAdvice, a zero-cost package testing consulting service, and PackReview, a DDL approved certification to demonstrate compliance with ISO 11607 (clause 7). DDL Testing Services maintains full service testing labs in Minnesota and California.
