The PGLI Experience

Since 1984, PGLI has faithfully functioned as an independent laboratory, specializing in a full range of Geosynthetic Testing Services; namely, conformance, seam and compatibility testing of all geosynthetic materials such as: geosynthetic clay liner (GCL), geomembrane, geotextile, geocomposite, geonet, geogrid and plastic pipes. PGLI has inspectors strategically located in most of the geosynthetic manufacturing production plants throughout the nation and worldwide. This allows for an extensive capability to conduct Monitoring and In-Plant Sampling services.

As an innovative leader, PGLI continually seeks new ways to better serve the industry. By furthering Research & Development (R&D), PGLI is helping the industry advance through developing and designing new products. PGLI offers fast turnaround time at NO ADDITIONAL charge. Same day service is available on some tests and 48-hour turnaround time for most of the conformance testing. PGLI staff members are heavily experienced in managing and scheduling high volume of testing and completing reports ON TIME.

The Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute (GAI) accredited PGLI to undertake more than 95 varieties of tests. The GAI accreditation is technically oriented which operates within the ISO Guide 17025 coverage. A few years after acquiring the GAI-LAP accreditation, the City of Los Angeles awarded Precision Geosynthetic Laboratories a certification to perform various geosynthetics testing in 1999. As part of its growing commitment towards total quality management, PGLI embarked on the ISO 9001-2000 Certification which was successfully achieved through Perry Johnson Registrars.

To date, PGLI is expanding and growing internationally. In March 2008, the new laboratory was opened in Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiangsu Province, China. PGLI understands the importance and value of conforming to the mandatory standards in China; consequently, ensured that the laboratory is accredited and certified by the China Metrication Accreditation (CMA) program.
