Test Procedures – Compliance

Understanding Testing and Analysis

The process of testing and analysis is paramount to discerning the exact characteristics of a product, process, or service, and it’s vital to adhere to a specific, standardized procedure for accuracy and reliability.

The Kiefner Expertise

With an enviable legacy of over 30 years in the realm of testing and analysis, Kiefner has established itself as a trailblazer in the domain. Our laboratory in Columbus, Ohio, stands as a testament to our commitment to excellence, equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and advanced instrumentation. This ensures that any type of industrial or consumer product undergoes meticulous testing and analysis, providing results of the highest precision.

The true hallmark of our service, however, is the actionable insights we derive from the results. We believe that data in isolation isn’t enough; it’s the interpretation and the resulting actionable steps that bring value. Hence, post the testing phase, Kiefner works closely with its clients, not just presenting the results, but also offering tangible proposals for improvement. This ensures that our clients can seamlessly meet – and often exceed – all relevant quality and safety standards.

Why Kiefner Stands Out

  • Columbus Laboratory: Located strategically in Columbus, Ohio, our lab is a hub of innovation and precision. With advanced equipment and a team of seasoned experts, the lab ensures that every test is rigorous and every analysis is insightful.
  • Legacy of Excellence: Our rich experience of over 30 years ensures that we bring a blend of traditional expertise and modern innovation to the table. This unique combination ensures that our clients always get the best of both worlds.
