We are committed to serving our customers and our environment by providing the highest quality data and services in support of their projects. We are a leader in seeking out energy saving technologies and environmentally sound practices.

 

In order to comply with State and Federal regulations, and to keep current with the latest industry procedures, Absolute Resource Associates is continually adding to and updating our long list of industry certifications and accreditations. In 2008, ARA obtained the Small Business Administration SBA 8(a) Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certification, and later qualified as a WOSB (Woman Owned Small Business) and an EDWOSB (Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business). These designations allow us to bid on projects set aside by the Government for small businesses. In 2011 we became one of just over 100 companies in the country to earn  DoD ELAP and ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation. We are proud the certifications we have earned, which help to keep us current with industry standards and requirements, and make us well positioned for continued growth into the future.

History

In November of 2000,  owners Susan and Guy Sylvester purchased a small environmental testing laboratory in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, called Resource Laboratories LLC (RL). Over the next few years, the laboratory doubled in revenue by providing quality data, superior technical support and highly responsive customer service. 

 

In 2007, the owners launched Absolute Air Quality (AAQ), a new business division, to provide indoor air quality services to commercial and residential customers. This line of business was developed with firm adherence to regulatory and industry standards and certifications. Adding these services rounded out our offerings, and made us the "clean air, clean water and clean soil people".  

 

As the RL and AAQ brands continued to grow, we began to see an overlap in services and personnel as we addressed the growing needs of our clients. In January, 2011, we combined the best of Absolute Air Quality and Resource Laboratories and launched our new company name: Absolute Resource Associates. Same great people, same exceptional service, exciting new possibilities. Since 2000, ARA has tripled in revenue, staffing and facility size, and is now well-known in the Federal, Commercial and Residential markets as one of the top environmental firms in New England.
