Our Story

20 Years of Business and Counting!

Corporate Philosophy

Specialty Analytical is a locally owned environmental and analytical testing laboratory dedicated to providing superior customer service and technical capabilities. As an employee owned company, each employee is committed to excellence in support of the client projects processed by the laboratory, and to pursuing continued growth, both professionally and personally.

Specialty Analytical was formed to provide clients access to environmental and analytical services that fulfill two goals, to provide the highest level of technically and legally defensible data, and to achieve a level of customer service unsurpassed in the field. Specialty Analytical recognizes that while the environmental field is a technical discipline, it is primarily a service industry. This recognition drives all decisions made in the laboratory.

All employees of Specialty Analytical have the drive to excel at customer service, making themselves available to clients for technical support, problem solving, and other client requests. We recognize a failure to do this will lead to a recognition of sameness with other laboratories providing services to the environmental field. Specialty Analytical wishes to be recognized as a leader in the service aspects of the field, while maintaining the high levels of technical support clients have come to expect from the founders and employees of the company.

Specialty Analytical strives to be recognized as the superior technical and customer service laboratory in the United States. This is achieved by working closely with clients, regulatory agencies, and industry to gain knowledge of requirements driving the environmental industry. Also, working closely with clients on specialized analysis allows greater insight on the purpose of the analysis, providing Specialty Analytical with information that may lead to superior service.
