POLARIS Laboratories is now processing samples in Atlanta

POLARIS' new Georgia-based facility opens and will provide local testing and analysis for the Southeastern U.S.

POLARIS Laboratories is now accepting samples at the following address:

N. Mount Business Center
1950 Evergreen Blvd., Ste. 400
Duluth, GA 30096

The laboratory is the company's fifth to open since its headquarters began operations in Indianapolis in 1999. It opened laboratories in Houston in 2003, in Salt Lake City in 2006 and in Edmonton, AB, in 2008.

According to POLARIS Laboratories CEO Bryan Debshaw, the new facility will provide a local presence for its growing customer base in the southeastern United States.

"We've provided technical sales support in the southeast for several years," Debshaw said. "But locating a laboratory in the Atlanta area will improve sample transit time for our customers and increase our production capacity considerably."

POLARIS Laboratories specializes in testing and analyzing oils, fuels, coolants and water-based industrial fluids for equipment reliability. The company currently supports more than 100 private label fluid analysis programs for customers that include Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Kendall, Ingersoll Rand, Terex, MTU and Cummins Filtration. It services more than 80,000 customers in over 15 countries worldwide.

POLARIS Laboratories Indianapolis, Houston, Salt Lake City and Edmonton are ISO 17025 A2LA accredited facilities, the highest level of quality attainable by a testing laboratory backed by the most stringent accrediting body in the industry. The Atlanta facility is currently preparing for its first audit and plans to be ISO 17025 A2LA accredited in June.
