PUT IT TO THE TEST
We take a lot of pride in doing more than chassis and structural durability testing. Throughout our extensive history, we’ve tested everything from Tour De France bicycles to army tanks.
Centrally located on 675 acres of rolling terrain in Northwest Indiana, we offer a secure, comprehensive vehicle-testing and development environment for all vehicle manufacturers and component suppliers.
