POLARIS Laboratories CEO Bryan Debshaw said that Canada’s strength in the oil and gas, mining, construction and transportation industries was a major factor in the company’s initial decision to expand internationally. Pleased with the facility’s performance, Debshaw and the company’s three founding partners had expected immediate growth from its inception.

“Companies in the oil and gas, mining, construction and transportation industries have been using our tools to manage maintenance costs for more than 10 years and our U.S. operations have experienced double-digit growth in nine of those 10,” Debshaw said. “Now, more than ever, companies are looking to reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment life and that’s what we do. We offer quality test results with innovative data management solutions, training and extensive field services - at a very competitive price.”

 Debshaw added that high interest in the new facility among prospective customers has increased the demand for training. As a result, POLARIS will offer public classes on oil and coolant analysis in Edmonton in both early spring and in the fall of 2010.

POLARIS Laboratories™ provides complete testing and analysis for oils, fuels, coolants and water-based industrial fluids. Its customer base is diverse with a heavy emphasis on the mining, construction and oil and gas industries. Known for providing high quality data, fast turnaround and knowledgeable technical support, the company’s state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation, highly skilled laboratory technicians and data analysts and an international team of technical sales and service professionals have positioned it at the forefront of the fluid analysis industry. Headquartered in Indianapolis since 1999, the company also has laboratories located in Houston and Salt Lake City.
