Twiss Analytical Announces Sales Increase, New Equipment

The Kitsap Business Journal
February 2001

Poulsbo's Twiss Analytical Laboratories, Inc., the only private certified analytical laboratory in West Sound certified by the Department of Health and accredited by the Department of Ecology, recently announced that sales for the year 2000 had increased 24.7 percent over 1999.  The announcement was made by company president Steve Twiss at the firm's annual shareholders meeting.  The firm attributes a major portion of the gain to a sales and marketing program implemented in 1999.

During 2000, the firm acquired numerous new clients, including several large water districts and federal contractors, expanded its courier service to Mason County, added new staff positions to expand customer service and added new instrumentation to automate nutrient analysis.

This year, the company plans to purchase a new instrument that will process metals analysis in 3 days or less - a process that now takes up to two weeks, and will expand its facility, increase laboratory capabilities and add additional employees.

A ten year old company, Twiss Analytical, Inc. focuses on testing drinking water and environmental samples for chemical and bacterial contaminants.
