About Us - History

Established in Mt. Vernon, Illinois in 1971 by Dr. L.V. Gibbons, ARDL has grown to include a staff of highly trained scientists, engineers, and technical specialists, providing a wide variety of services in the fields of chemistry, engineering, the environmental sciences, industrial hygiene, safety training and petroleum technology. ARDL is Nelac certified by the State of Illinois and holds DoD-ELAP accrediation through Perry Johnson Laboratory Accredition, Inc. Further, the laboratory is under contract with USEPA Region 7 as a part of the Region 7 Environmental Sample Testing program (REST).

Given the demonstrated strength of its technical and management staff and its highly sophisticated instrumentation inventory, ARDL can provide clients with a focused, cost effective response to their need for assistance in the sciences and engineering, drawing on more than two decades of successful operational history to assure successful project completion. No project is too large or too small. ARDL's services range from the analysis of a single sample to the management and execution of large multi-year, multi-dollar programs requiring a complex, multi-disciplinary team approach.

The Company prides itself on furnishing each and every client with a quality service at a highly competitive price.
