From Passion to Partnership

The ARL Story

CEO Matt Lewis talking with ARL partners in his office.

A Spark Ignites

The story of Analytical Resource Labs (ARL) begins 24 years ago with a single spark—Matt Lewis's passion for helping others. Working as a quality manager at a nutritional supplement company, Matt witnessed firsthand the importance of quality testing. He saw samples shipped out for analysis, and a bold idea ignited: why not offer these services directly?

Driven by this vision, Matt embarked on a side hustle. He established ARL, a third-party quality lab dedicated to empowering businesses to create safe products for consumers. The journey wasn't easy. It demanded hard work and unwavering dedication. But Matt's focus on value, experience, and professionalism became the cornerstone of ARL's identity. Taking the leap was a risk, but ultimately, one of the most rewarding decisions he ever made.

This was just the beginning. ARL's story continues to unfold, but the foundation laid by Matt's vision and commitment continues to guide us forward.

Building a Foundation for Quality

2000 marked the beginning of our journey. We started as a small lab, focused on providing high-quality analytical services to a niche market. Our dedication to accuracy, personalized attention, and cutting-edge technology quickly distinguished us. As word spread about our expertise and reliable results, our partner base grew steadily.

Growth and Evolution

Recognizing the evolving needs of our partners, we expanded our services beyond basic microbiology testing. We started offering in-depth consultations, customized testing solutions, and ongoing project support. This shift towards partnership-based collaboration proved instrumental in our success. We weren't just a lab; we became a trusted advisor, helping businesses navigate the complexities of analytical testing and achieve their quality goals.

In 2015, ARL partnered with Tentamus North America, Inc., a network of laboratories headquartered in Berlin, Germany. This partnership broadens our capabilities.

Today, ARL stands as a leading provider of analytical testing services across various industries. We're constantly investing in advanced technology, expanding our service portfolio, and nurturing a team of highly skilled scientists.
