Share Article

DDL West package testing laboratory is expanding its testing services with the addition of Hazmat expert, John Koch. – DDL West, a CA-based package, product and material testing laboratory, today announced that it has added Hazmat testing expert, John Koch, as a Project Manager to its quickly growing team.

Koch joins the DDL West team with a strong package testing industry background and particular expertise in Hazmat Testing.

"I am looking forward to helping DDL West expand its service offerings into Hazmat testing," said Koch. "With the current saturation of the Californian package testing marketplace, it is really important to develop a competitive advantage."

Koch, who is certified by the Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials, will lead DDL West in the development of a Hazmat testing services department.

"Hazmat testing is just one avenue that DDL West plans to pursue in the expansion of its testing services," said Mike Foster, Package Engineer, DDL West. "Adding John Koch to the DDL West team now puts us in a position to compete with other leading package testing labs in California."

Since opening its DDL West test lab facility in 2003, DDL Inc has consistently proven itself to be a leader in the package testing industry with the ongoing growth of its team of tenured package testing engineers and its ability to penetrate the highly competitive California market.

DDL West also recently announced its involvement in the formation and management of a Southern California chapter of the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP).
