Transport Package Testing Lab

About Us

Our Story.

Our company began as a division of Compadre LLC in February, 2006, when our packaging testing laboratory became certified by International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) to test and certify packaging.  Our laboratory was created to test packaging in-house and support existing design customers.

In 2009, after repeated external requests, we started 3rd party testing services.  By 2013, we reached a milestone of completing packaging testing projects for over 300 customers.

In 2015, the decision was made to have the laboratory become a stand-alone business managed by Henry Heil and Tim Willis.  In honor of its history, the new company was named Compadre Labs LLC.  With the new name came a new focus on service.  Our passion “To make life easier” says it all.

In 2018, Compadre Labs became part of the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS) to test and certify Amazon product packaging solutions that meet PFP, SIOC, or FFP.


Our Core Values:

Every customer is our only customer

Always do the right thing, even if it hurts

Laugh once in a while (laugh out loud, make it contagious)

Never give them a reason to leave

What We Do.

We test packaging.  Packaging should be tested locally to your factory and shipping locations.  Compadre Labs has always been located in Austin, Texas and mainly serves the surrounding areas of Texas and Mexico.  We specialize in LTL/Heavy bulky items and packaging testing per ISTA, ASTM D4169, Amazon, Walmart and Sam’s Club procedures.
