How We Started
ARL was established in January 2000 by founder and CEO Matt Lewis. In 2015, ARL partnered with Tentamus North America, Inc., a network of laboratories headquartered in Berlin, Germany. This partnership broadens our capabilities.
Our growth and success could not have happened without fantastic team members in our locations across the USA.
We exist to provide experience, professionalism, and value in world-leading analytical testing services at the highest level of integrity, reliability, timeliness, accuracy.
Our Management Team
Matt Lewis has been CEO and owner of ARL for 21 years. He founded ARL in 2000 to provide the highest level of service, professionalism, and value to the dietary supplement industry. Endeavoring to be a true partner to contract manufacturers, distributors, and marketing agencies, ARL was created to serve. This is its mission. Matt holds a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from Brigham Young University. Initially, Matt’s goal was to enter medical School, following his wife's completion of law school. In the interim, he decided to start ARL as a third-party contract analytical laboratory. Matt’s calling became more apparent as ARL began to grow and succeed. At the end of the three-year hiatus, it did not make sense to abandon what he had created. ARL has since built an incredible team that shares Matt’s vision of service, one that elevates the value of “doing it right, on time, every time.” ARL’s success under Matt’s stewardship through the years has created partnerships across the industry and expanded across states, as we continue to follow Matt’s vision to build bridges of success for ARL’s clients and becoming game changers in the quality testing industry.
