Adds a Twelfth EMI / EMC Testing Laboratory to NTS’ Market Leading Position, Allowing NTS to Locally Serve Clients in the Rocky Mountain Region

CALABASAS, CA and LONGMONT, CO, DEC 23, 2015 – National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), the leading independent provider of environmental simulation testing, inspection, and certification solutions in the United States, announced today that it has acquired EMC Integrity (“EMCI”) of Longmont, Colorado. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 1994, EMC Integrity, which will become NTS Longmont, operates a 17,000 square foot, state-of-the-art emissions and immunity testing facility that offers ample land for expansion and is centrally located between Denver, Boulder, and Ft. Collins, Colorado. EMC Integrity’s two fully accredited 10-meter chambers represent a regional best-in-class capability that NTS plans to extend with additional capital and personnel investments to serve EMCI’s world-class customers in the information technology, medical, aerospace, and commercial markets.

NTS Longmont is the twelfth NTS laboratory offering EMI / EMC emissions, immunity, and mitigation testing services in the United States and adds an important geographic location that further supports NTS’ nationwide coverage. Additionally, as a CB Testing Laboratory (“CBTL”), NTS Longmont allows NTS to expand the services it currently offers to the medical device market.

“We are excited to add a Rocky Mountain location to the NTS network, enhancing our ability to serve our clients in the region, and we look forward to expanding EMCI’s capabilities to drive future growth,” noted William C. McGinnis, CEO of NTS. McGinnis added, “Local access, cutting-edge capabilities, and schedule availability have all been part of a successful acquisition strategy, which has allowed us to add eight new testing locations over the last two years in furtherance of our goal to provide our industry-leading environmental simulation testing capabilities on a nationwide basis.”

Vince Greb, founder of EMC Integrity, added, “EMCI has a great reputation in the local market that, when combined with NTS’ respected national brand, will allow NTS Longmont to enter its next phase of growth. Our folks are very excited to be part of the NTS team, and we look forward to further investing in our local capabilities to serve our clients and all of their EMI / EMC and other testing needs.”
