The Lab was started in 2010 by Gary Winstanley and Paul Cooper. The company has grown and expanded to now employ more than 140 staff in three countries.

We pride ourselves foremost on integrity, being responsive to Clients needs, providing testing services in a timely manner and offering advice on material solutions.

The company operates using a quality system accredited to comply with both ISO17020 and ISO17025.

Although we are capable of undertaking and accredited for many ‘standard’ test methods using BS, ASTM, ISO, AASHTO and local standards, we also have sufficient in-house expertise to modify any of these methods to suit our Clients requirements or develop new in-house procedures.

Key staff at The Lab have all spent more than a decade (and several-decades in some cases!) working for test houses and laboratories around the world. As a result we are well versed in the tests and solutions that are available globally and can call on several well known partners to assist in the occasional circumstances that we are not able to undertake the required testing in-house.
