Neilson Research Corporation opened its doors in January of 1981. NRC was started by John W.T. Neilson, a chemist and microbiologist. He is still our chief executive officer. The corporation is privately held, and Mr. Neilson is the principal owner.

For the first five years of operation in the garage, we were known as Neilson Research Analytical Laboratory. We specialized in water microbiology and offered limited inorganic chemical analyses.

We listen carefully to our customers to make sure we deliver what they need and have come to expect from us.  If a customer has a problem with their laboratory results, we respond quickly and make sure the problem is resolved.  Our goal is to deliver top quality, totally documented environmental laboratory services on time.  We always take that “little extra” to help our customers understand their test results, and ultimately, to make sure the customer is completely satisfied.
