T.E.Laboratories was formed in 1991 initially specializing in the analysis and treatment of fuel. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength through a series of diversifications of our core business. We now boast a first-class INAB Accredited Environmental Laboratory, a Chemical Manufacturing Laboratory, and a Microbiological Laboratory in addition to our Fuel Laboratory. In November 2007 we opened our Transcheck Oil Analysis Laboratory.
Originally based in Blessington, Co Wicklow, alongside our sister company Sturdy Products, the company moved to Tullow Co Carlow in 2000 due to considerable expansion. A new premises was custom built for our use, allowing expansion and growth in the future. In May 2005 the company went through a management buy out to enable the directors concentrate solely on the growth and development of the company within the unique markets it operates in.
In November 2007 we installed a new GC for doing Dissolved Gases Analysis (DGA) on transformer oils. This has increased our capablilties, allowing us offer faster turnaround times to customers who generally sent their samples to the UK for analysis. We count among our customers many of Irelands top companies in the fields of Manufacturing, Environmental Consultancy, Fuel Distribution & Storage, Pharmaceutical Manufacturers as well as National and Local Government.
In 2009 we began exporting our chemicals worldwide. We manufacture an extensive range of chemical standards offering custom manufacturing options to meet individual requirements of our customers. We have now developed an extensive network of distributor partners which is continuously growing.
Impressively, the company continued to grow and diversify into new markets through innovation and development. In January 2010 we moved into our new site,an incredible custom built 4000m2 building equipped with state of the art laboratories, a training centre, brand new research and development department and increased bulk manufacturing facilities. The building is split over three levels with a large water treatment purification system utilizing rainwater from the roof.
The larger facility has allowed us expand our operation in machine care oil analysis (using tribology for preventive maintenance on mechanical assets), chemical production and research and development. We have continued to increase our in-house capabilities adding HPLC for Furan analysis in 2010 and Ferrography for mode of failure/wear identification in 2011. As a result TelLab are the only company in Ireland with a dedicated oil analysis laboratory.
We have also widened our customer base exporting products to a number of European countries. We support and take stands in international trade shows in the chemical supply market such as “Arab Lab” in Dubai and “Achema” in Frankfurt, two of the leading trade shows in the chemical supply market.
