From the Press Release January 2016: “We’re happy to introduce our latest accomplishment to both the local business community and our clients who will benefit from the state of the art space.” said Raymond Thompson, PhD, CEO and Owner of the firms. “The ribbon-cutting ceremony for Vista and VEAR marks the launch of a new phase for both businesses.”
Homewood Chamber of Commerce will facilitate the 4pm cutting and Hoover Chamber Representatives will assist congratulating the Innovation Depot graduates in the opening of the facility. The laboratory features a scanning electron microscope and other equipment that makes it among the premier metallurgy labs in the Southeast.
“We’re delighted to invite the public to see how much we’ve done to the building. Homewood is now home to an engineering laboratory that stands where warehouse space used to be. Many upgrades were made to surfaces, HVAC, communications and the electrical to bring it to the standards required for an engineering laboratory.” Said Dustin Nolen, PE.
