Architectural Testing Acquires Assets of ETC LaboratoriesApril 22nd, 2011 by DWM Magazine
Architectural Testing Inc. (ATI), in York, Pa., announced it has acquired substantially all assets from Effect Technologies Corporation (d.b.a. ETC Laboratories). The facility in Rochester, N.Y., will be evaluated for continued operations, but customers will now have the ability to be serviced from multiple locations with many more disciplines than previously available.
Started in 1995, ETC Laboratories focused on physical testing and simulation of doors, windows, skylights, insulating glass and many other building products. Dave Kehrli, the founder of ETC Laboratories, as well as several key employees, will remain with ATI.
“The current economic times, especially in the building construction industry, have simply created an environment that could not allow my business to continue operating as a going concern,” says Kehrli. “Architectural Testing’s vast footprint across the United States and Canada along with their breadth and depth of services and personnel will afford my customers opportunities never before available and I look forward to having them join me at ATI.”
“Architectural Testing is dedicated to insuring that ETC’s customers see the benefit of working with our organization and the confidence that can be afforded to them by our 260 employees, 11 laboratories and eight regional offices,” says Henry Taylor, founder and president of ATI.
