Featuring AICC Technical Advisors Ralph Young and Tom Weber

Improving the bottom line of member companies is an ongoing goal of AICC. Since many plants have reported the savings in process improvement and supplier accountability more than offset the initial cost and yearly employee costs for testing, this webinar is critical for any company considering or curious about creating an in-house testing lab. 

Industry experts Young and Weber will discuss the essential equipment, testing, and costs for establishing an in-house testing lab.
