New Laboratory and Analytic Services Technical Consulting has always offered a high level of analytical services to our clients. We have been fortunate to have the resources of several High Tech laboratories to augment our own primary laboratory. In our recent move to Charlotte, North Carolina we discovered a hidden treasure in the form of the Textile Technology Center at Gaston College. North Carolina was a hotbed of the Textile industry for centuries before manufacturing turned offshore. Many of the support services for manufacturing also shifted their services to accommodate the offshore onslaught, many sadly just closed up. The State of North Carolina, recognizing the value of this great lab, stepped in to fortify the fiscal responsibility. We are happy to say that Technical Consulting and the Textile Technology Center have developed a relationship and are now able to offer a level expertise unmatched anywhere in the US.
