Strata earns GAI-LAP accreditation for its new plant laboratory in India

July 24th, 2019 / By: / Company News

Strata, a global leader in geosynthetic products and engineering solutions, has been awarded the Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute–Laboratory Accreditation Program (GAI-LAP) certification for the manufacturing of StrataGrid (flexible PET geogrids) and StrataWeb (geocell) at its new manufacturing facility in Daheli, which opened in early 2019.

The GAI-LAP accreditation designates that the products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective and consistent quality management system.

Strata is one of the few companies in India whose laboratories are GAI-LAP accredited. Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute confers accreditation to laboratories proving compliance with equipment and documentation for specific standards (ASTM and / or ISO) test methods. In addition, GAI-LAP verifies that an effective quality system exists by way of proficiency in testing. The program’s goal is to accredit geosynthetic laboratories for performing consensus standardized test methods for equipment, documentation and testing protocol. With the onset of Strata’s new manufacturing facility, they have invested in new-generation equipment along with improved testing mechanisms. There are approximately 100 labs across the world with GAI-LAP accreditation. 

Strata has once again reinforced its relentless focus on creating industry-leading products and services, measured against global benchmarks of industry excellence.

Strata’s Director and CEO, Narendra Dalmia said, “I am extremely proud of my team for this achievement. This is fantastic news for us and recommits Strata’s emphasis on high quality and world-class testing. We are dedicated to constant improvement and achieving the GAI-LAP accreditation ensures we have the processes and systems in place for this.”

With offices in the U.S., India, Brazil, and UK, Strata is a global provider of geosynthetic products and solutions that solve an array of infrastructure challenges. In India, Strata offers fully integrated construction and contracting capabilities which has helped create a team with unmatched specialist knowledge and expertise.

Besides the GAI-LAP accreditation, Strata is ISO certified, NTPEP listed, and its products hold the CE marking.
