Great reviews from outstanding clients

Mark Delafosse

Sales Director Disruptive Packaging

“ACL confidently delivered this solution”

Excellent custom experience with Harley at Australian Compliance Laboratory. Testing our cold-chain boxes to a dynamic temperature profile required purpose-built equipment, data-logging and tight tolerances. We weren’t sure that we could find a laboratory to do this project, but then ACL confidently delivered this solution in-house, and in such a way that was clear, quick and professional. We’ll happily be working together again soon!”

We tried Australian Compliance Laboratory for the first time as we had some packaging that required urgent approval. From the beginning they gave me confidence as their attitude, service and advice was outstanding. They let us know what products were required for the tests and the amount of time it would take. When we visited their premises, they showed us the equipment for testing our packaging as well as all sorts of packaging and products. Read more
