Cascade TEK of Hillsboro, Oregon has received the A2LA accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA).

Doug Barrett, founder and President of Cascade TEK, tells us, "At Cascade Tek we stand 100% behind what we deliver, and becoming A2LA accredited is just one more way that we can be sure we are serving our customers to the best of our ability." Cascade TEK is also accredited by other prominent laboratory accreditation organizations, including the Department of Defense Supply Center for MIL-STD testing and ISTA for Package Testing, and is a member of the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) for DO160 environmental testing of avoinics. Cascade Tek now carries A2LA accreditation in Vibration and Shock Testing, Temperature and Humidity Testing, and Salt Spray (Fog) Testing, as well as many other test conditions. This accreditation covers testing under Mil Standards, RTCA, ASTM, ISTA, SAE and Belcore GR-63 Part 2.

"We have grown our testing facility to include a complete suite of vibration testing, package testing, and environmental stress testing services and have always seen value in having independent organizations such as A2LA audit these services", says Doug.
