Following its completion in December, the laboratory was audited in March and is now ready for business. It will offer a range of soil classification tests now listed on our UKAS Schedule of Accreditation.
Richard Ashby, with 18 years of experience from the Bristol and Hemel Hempstead laboratories, will manage the Tonbridge laboratory. He comments, “The new laboratory will give us greater geographical coverage and enable us to take on work in the South East that was previously impractical owing to travel times and costs. We’re seeing a steady increase in business and our expansion to four laboratories reflects that. Just south of London, with excellent motorway access, the Tonbridge office was the perfect place to set up. We’re looking forward to getting started.”
