COMPANY HISTORY

Guardian Fire Testing Laboratories, Inc. was created in 1994 by Joe Pearson and Lalit Kumar – both coming from engineering backgrounds. Since our formation, the world of fire testing has changed frequently and dramatically. At each shift, Guardian has embraced the technological advancements and revised requirements to deliver optimal service to our customers.

While our industry has evolved over the past 25 years, what has remained steadfast is the way we conduct business. To this day, Guardian remains a family-run company, with direct ties back to our founders within our current management group.
