A multinational firm that provides independent commodities inspection, sampling and testing services for industry sectors including oil and petrochemicals, metals and minerals, exploration and mining, coal, as well as agri-commodities and fertilizers, has opened a new location on Slater Road in Ferndale.
Inspectorate, part of Bureau Veritas’ commodities division, has opened an 8,000-square-foot facility that offers tank, rail, barge and ship inspections, gauging, sampling and draft surveys, as well as the following product testing services: diesel fuel/ASTM, crude oil, middle distillates, residual fuels, gasoline, jet fuel and liquefied petroleum gas.
The company says its expansion into Whatcom County is driven by increased demand from the local refining industry.
“This relocation demonstrates our commitment to drive growth and get closer to our valued refinery industry customers,” said Steve Simmons, the company’s division manager of oil and petrochemicals, in a press release. “We look forward to working with our customers to deliver quality inspection and analysis results driven by the laboratory’s state-of-the-art equipment.”
The new facility is located at 1350 Slater Road, Suite 7, in Ferndale.
