T.E.Laboratories was formed in 1991 initially specializing in the analysis and treatment of fuel. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength through a series of diversifications of our core business. We now boast a first-class INAB Accredited Environmental Laboratory, a Chemical Manufacturing Laboratory, and a Microbiological Laboratory in addition to our Fuel Laboratory. In November 2007, we opened our Transcheck Oil Analysis Laboratory.
In November 2007, we installed a new GC for doing Dissolved Gases Analysis (DGA) on transformer oils. This has increased our capabilities, allowing us offer faster turnaround times to customers who generally sent their samples to the UK for analysis. We count among our customers many of Ireland’s top companies in the fields of Manufacturing, Environmental Consultancy, Fuel Distribution & Storage, Pharmaceutical Manufacturers as well as National and Local Government.
In January 2010, we moved into our new bespoke building (4000m2). Split over three levels, all of our five laboratories have state of the art equipment and a team of chemists, scientists and engineers. The larger facility has allowed us to expand our operation in machine care oil analysis using tribology for preventive maintenance on mechanical assets. We have increased our chemical production facilities to allow us make bespoke chemicals exactly to our customer requirements. The past few years have witnessed an incredible growth in our research and development expertise, attracting incredibly talented pre and post doctorate level individuals.
We have continued to increase our in-house capabilities adding HPLC for Furan analysis in 2010 and Ferrography for mode of failure/wear identification in 2011. We have also widened our customer base exporting chemical products worldwide.
