An A2LA Accredited Laboratory

We take safety seriously.

Several years ago King Tester received the ISO 17025 accreditation from American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), the only independent internationally recognized accreditation body in the United States.

The accreditation comes after an extensive and comprehensive audit of King Tester’s quality program and procedures. In order to receive accreditation, King Tester must meet (and continue to meet) the highest international standards of rigorous quality evaluation for product and service quality.

James Knight, president of King Tester Corporation said, “We are pleased to receive this recognition for our products and services. This certification provides tangible independent validation of our continuing commitment to the highest quality testing equipment and products for our customers.”

This accreditation further legitimizes King Tester as not only a premier manufacturer of metal hardness testers, but now as a calibration laboratory for metal hardness testers.

King Tester continues to build on over 80 years of manufacturing and service to metal producers and users worldwide. King Tester recently introduced its new KingScope100™ as an innovation in Brinell measuring devices. King Tester offers a wide range of metal hardness testing equipment and related products to customers worldwide.

King Tester was founded in 1936 by Andrew King to satisfy the need for a portable full load Brinell Hardness Tester. King Tester manufactures King Portable Brinell hardness testers and related Brinell products. King Tester’s customers range from the largest multinationals to small privately-owned metal processors. King serves a wide range of industries including aerospace, rail, auto, foundries, steel and aluminum mills, calibration labs, oil and gas, heat treaters, wear parts, military, infrastructure, construction, and utilities.
