NSF in Ann Arbor, a global public health and safety organization, bought PSILab Inc., a Colorado-based advanced product testing and consulting laboratory specializing in plastic pipe, pipe materials, and other polymeric and composite products. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

PSILab provides laboratory testing, failure analysis, and consulting services. Now, existing NSF clients will have added access to new testing services, including material properties, large-diameter pipe testing, finished goods hydrostatic pressure and burst testing, extensive product failure analysis, and plastic pipe consulting.

“The acquisition of PSILab Inc. is aligned with NSF’s commitment to deliver high-quality testing and superior service to the plastic pipe and pipe materials industries globally,” says Pedro Sancha, president and CEO at NSF.

“This was a natural step for our organization as NSF works to expand its broad range of services to the water pipe industry to support our vision of enabling clean water for all. We are excited to welcome PSILab’s talented and experienced team members to the NSF family.”

Manufacturers of large diameter pipes seeking NSF certification will have a more streamlined testing process, working directly with NSF to test their products.

“PSILab Inc. has built a strong reputation for delivering high quality technical expertise through trusted lab results,” says Steve Ferry, founder and president of PSILab. “We are excited to become a part of NSF and contribute superior technical expertise to key players in the water industry, including resin and ingredient manufacturers, pipe manufacturers, design engineers, installing contractors and system owners.”
