What our customers are saying...

"My company has been using SGS Forensic Laboratories as our asbestos and lead laboratory for over 25 years. Their quality work, and turnaround times (especially on emergency projects) are unmatched. However, their willingness and ability to assist you in situations where results come back with results you were not expecting, is what really sets them apart from any other lab."

-- Michael C. Sharp, President & CEO, HMS, Inc.
