About HighQ LLC

HighQ began on the “other side” of the business as a consulting company developing and guiding packages through the hazmat, regulatory and temperature validation requirements for many types of packages.  What became apparent was that many customers were new to the process and didn’t understand the certification requirements.  Many package labs had the attitude of “Send your packages in and we’ll get back to you with the results, pass or fail”. HighQ Testing grew out of the need to have a package lab that helps clients better understand the process, educate them on what types of packages can pass the tests and ultimately get them to a successful result.
