The first order for any company is a big deal. TestResources founder, Bob Brosch, started the company in 1998 with a monumental one. Placing computerized servo controls on one of the largest test machines in North America, our first customer was NASA! Building the order in his basement, it propelled the company into a world-wide business, growing each year to this day.
From that first high stakes order to today, we have tackled the industry with a genuinely customer-based mindset, straying away from standard products and building machines from our customers test requirements. Our story is also the story of our partnership with vendors. We partner with international companies who offer great products and innovative technologies to make our products affordable and reliable. Here is what some of our customers say:
“I want to personally thank you very much for your promptness in shipping the test fixtures to me. I received them yesterday and we are in the process of using them immediately in conducting laboratory testing.”
“I needed a method of measuring accurate data results for the angle and torque-free motion of a rabbit’s knee. TestResources took the time to understand what I needed and came up with an effective and budget-friendly solution.”
What This Means for You
TestResources takes a new approach to test machine design called Smart Design. Our test machines have a unique modular design of interchangeable components. Our process begins by gathering test applications information to identify the machine test requirements for each universal test machine. Smart Design brings lower cost to our customers with the 95/50 rule, meaning that our machines target 95% of applications at 50% the price. Learn more about Smart Design.
