To All Our Valued Customers, Thank you for your loyalty and consistency as clients over the years. Your business and satisfaction are essential to us. We trust that we have been as successful in providing you with the excellent service and trusted testing that we are committed to deliver.

WESTPAK has had the same pricing structure for many years with little to no price increases. However, due to increasing business costs, we have found it necessary to implement a general price increase effective February 01, 2019. Please note that prices listed on quotes issued before February 01 will be honored if testing completes on or before the quote's expiration date. This price increase is minimal, yet something we must do to continue to provide you with the quality and service you've come to expect.
