Tucson Laboratory Update

September 17th, 2014

Inspectorate America Corporation has postponed opening the Tucson, Arizona sample preparation laboratory. Downward trending market conditions have interrupted company plans to open that high-capacity operation.  Inspectorate has optional locations that are providing analytical services to the Southwest.  If your current provider is unable to fulfill your needs, please contact one of our main offices to receive a price quotation for either off site or mine-site-lab offerings.

We would like to thank all of our clients that choose us as their analytical service provider, and we’ll continue to offer quality, high-speed services on a global basis at competitive prices.

Please contact us for more information at email: info@inspectorate.com , you can also visit us www.inspectorate.com

Kind regards,
