Integrity is not given; it is earned.

Heavy investment in our microbiology and chemistry laboratories – for quality control, program development and R&D – is testament to our commitment to providing customers with important performance data. Additionally, TRA supports the United Nations’ Global Compact and cooperates with our suppliers and customers in upholding its principles.
