We ( are an ISO/IEC 17025 compliant testing laboratory which provides quality testing and calibration services for a variety of industries. We provide our customers with prompt and thorough feedback and can accommodate a wide variety of standard and customized environmental, mechanical, electrical, and chemical testing programs.

Singer Laboratories is a fully equipped testing lab catering to aerospace, industrial, product development, and other industries who require certification or qualification to established testing methods, or who with to customize a representative test plan to their specifications. The equipment and testing that we perform on a day-to-day basis includes: automatic and manual transfer thermal shock, thermal cycling, and thermal ageing chambers, cryogenic cooling equipment, temperature at altitude, humidity, hydrostatic pressure, liquid immersion, salt mist, dust ingress, thermal and vacuum bake-out, vibration (via electrodynamic shaker), mechanical shock, tensile and compression testing, fiber optic and electrical discontinuity, dielectric withstanding voltage, temperature rise vs. current, and more.

Singer Labs prides itself by staffing capable technicians and engineers who can see a testing plan from conception or customer request, to designing or assembling any required custom fixtures or equipment, all the way to conducting testing and issuing a test report.

We are set apart from other testing labs by our rapid responses, quick turnaround, and ability to fabricate custom fixturing or equipment using our in-house fully equipped machine shop.

Our staff is made up of people with highly varied backgrounds, and the ability to quickly pick up new skills and quickly formulate solutions is a highly regarded skill.

We offer one-of-a-kind work, good people, a flexible working environment, a health plan, and we'll make the money right.
