In 1999, we started this company with a plan to provide professional engineering and materials testing services to the highway construction industry and public construction agencies. Since that time, we have grown beyond my wildest dreams.
I credit our growth to our response to the economic and environmental needs of our clients, and to the priorities of the industry at large. Our industry is always changing, and we have changed with it. When we started, "green alleys" had grass growing through them, not water flowing through them. "Ground Tire Rubber" referred to skid marks on the road, not a component of the road. "FRAP" used to be a typo referring to RAP, not a new technology in asphalt design. Concrete mixture technology has evolved from cheap tap beer to a hand-crafted microbrew. All these things have become part of our industry, and we are proud to be a part of it. Again, a hearty "Thank You" to our clients for making our dreams come true.
Welcome to the website of S.T.A.T.E. Testing LLC. We are an independent professional engineering firm specializing in consultation and testing of construction materials. Our company is situated in the heart of the Chicago metropolitan area. By learning from and growing with a diverse and innovative construction environment, we are always striving to bring better service to our clients.
Our Business Philosophy
We provide materials engineering services that go beyond the end-of-the project test reports. When tests are used to control quality, we believe it is more likely that the project will be successful. That is why we concentrate our focus on Quality Control and Quality Assurance.
We are committed to maintaining superior internal quality levels. Our East Dundee and O'Hare labs are accredited by AASHTO. IDOT and FHWA recognize this accreditation for qualification to conduct acceptance and referee testing. Our technicians are constantly upgrading their training, and many of our technicians maintain PCC and HMA Level III certification.
I appreciate our hard-working, professional staff, and the great clients we serve. We hope you find that our qualifications and philosophy match your needs, and that you consider S.T.A.T.E. Testing for your project.
Thanks for visiting. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office.
