About Us

Terrapin Testing is a small firm that performs testing for clients across the United States and internationally.  What sets us apart from our competitors is that we offer personalized, one-on-one service to our clients.  We have the ability to respond to interim findings and adjust where necessary.  Our clients, both large and small, appreciate our value-added approach to testing.

Our facility in Rancho Cordova, California is equipped to provide a variety of testing services on building components.

Our state-of-the-art equipment and methods allow us to perform tests with continuous real-time engineering feedback and to obtain accurate, traceable, meaningful results.

Real-time engineering feedback during testing allows us to work with our clients to modify and streamline the testing process, reducing unnecessary testing costs.  Our detailed understanding of the industry and of our client’s goals for each product ensures that we provide meaningful and relevant test data.

We pride ourselves on working with our clients as a team to achieve results that are both accurate and reliable.  Where regulatory hurdles are presented, we process the necessary paperwork and submittals to ease the burden.  Our clients benefit from our communication skills before, during, and after the test program.

In December 2007, we merged our laboratory into our sister company, TJC and Associates, Inc. (TJCAA).  TJCAA is a structural engineering firm that provides structural and electrical engineering for water and wastewater treatment plants.  This merger allows us to leverage our in-house engineering knowledge, to tailor the scope of testing to meet the unique needs of each product, and to address new and different testing requirements.  TJCAA’s website is at www.tjcaa.com.

We recognize that we are “a small fish” in a big pond, but we have intentionally been this way for more than 13 years.  We have completed against larger firms and consistently win the job when our clients understand the value TJCAA adds to the project.  During our time in business, we have maintained a very low turnover rate.  That speaks volumes regarding the level of service we provide.
