Thirty years in the Aviation Industry …and still growing! Aviation Laboratories opens its second laboratory facility and more!
Houston, Texas – April 1, 2014 - Aviation Laboratories (AvLab) industry leader in aviation specific engine wear analysis, is excited to announce the opening of its second laboratory facility in Houston, Texas. For nearly 30 years, Aviation Laboratories has made considerable contribution to the aviation industry, particularly in the area of engine wear analysis, providing aviation specific oil, filter, fuel and hydraulic fluid analysis for all types of aircraft, for customers all across the globe. And now with its new laboratory facility, in addition to its primary laboratory in Kenner, Louisiana, AvLab is positioned to further penetrate and service the market.

Since acquiring a new Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) last year, to enhance analytical capabilities and increase sample volumes, business has definitely picked up. As a result of recent growth and consistently reliable services, Turbomeca has renewed AvLab’s certification in January 2014, which certifies AvLab as an approved Turbomeca laboratory for SOAP (spectrometric oil analysis program) through January 2017.

As a company, AvLab is experiencing a great deal of positive growth overall, impacting all divisions of the company from its laboratory services to its maintenance and chemical product sales. And continual growth is expected with the addition of new AvLab Family member John Stiles. John’s background includes nearly 20 years of experience in aviation oil analysis, sales and executive management. John’s expertise and analytical ability is being put to use as AvLab’s new Sales Manager. Additionally, The AvLab Family has welcomed newcomer Brandon Taylor as Laboratory Technician for the new Houston Laboratory and has appointed long term asset Scott Hitterman as Product Specialist for the company!

AvLab expects continued success in the year 2014 and years to come!
