Community Service

Giving back to the local community where we live and work is important to our staff.  Suburban Testing Labs became the first organization to “Adopt a Riverfront” through RiverPlace on the Schuylkill where we adopted a portion of the Schuylkill River and sponsored a blooming Cherry Tree at the site.  We also volunteer for the United Way Day of Caring with the Berks Conservancy and the American Cancer Society of Berks County.
