“The Lansing Product Testing Lab is the next step in our commitment to implementing important new services that solve our clients’ product development challenges,” said Jim Dowey, president of Smithers Rapra. “With the expanded facilities in Lansing, we’re offering a total solution and the final stop for products in development before they find success in the marketplace.”
The new Lansing Product Testing Lab enhances Smithers Rapra’s existing service to the R&D and engineering groups of major automakers and suppliers in the Midwest. In addition, the new product testing lab complements the adjacent Smithers Package and Distribution Testing facility where product packaging and shipping performance are evaluated for consumer goods and beverage companies, medical device manufacturers, automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.
“With the addition of the new services, our Lansing Lab can offer automotive, industrial and medical companies a more complete product testing process,” states Jeff Andrasik, product testing supervisor. “Once a product has been tested and verified, we can also test the packaging to ensure safe and efficient delivery. The process is completely streamlined.”
The Smithers Rapra Lansing Product Testing Lab joins the Smithers Product Testing Lab in Akron, OH, Tire & Wheel Test Center in Ravenna, OH, the Winter Test Facility in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and lab in Suzhou, China in serving various industry segments including automotive, aerospace, medical, industrial goods and component.
