Atlas Starts Testing At New Headquarters

The Atlas Weathering Services Group (AWSG) division of Chicago-based Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC has begun outdoor exposure testing at its new worldwide headquarters in Miami, located at 16100 SW 216th St. As of mid-June, the company is exposing all new orders in Miami at the site.

Earlier this year, the division announced it would create a consolidated weathering exposure center by combining 18 acres of newly acquired land and its existing South Florida Test Service Everglades site. The company also is closing its former headquarters and testing site on Okeechobee Road.

In addition, AWSG is relocating all existing test specimens to the new site, named South Florida Test Service, and will continue to do so until all have been transferred. The company will transport and handle those samples according to the standards of ASTM G147 — Conditioning and Handling of Nonmetallic Materials for Natural and Artificial Weathering Tests.

“We’ve gone through this process several times as our business has grown over the last 75 years,” said Jack Martin, president, AWSG. “Our processes will ensure that samples are moved safely and quickly, and our bar-coding system will allow us to accurately track the movement of every specimen.”

AWSG currently operates five laboratories and 20 outdoor sites worldwide, offering a variety of testing environments including desert, high altitude, corrosive and subtropical.
