“We expect a lab to deliver quality results quickly. But will they help us solve problems? Will they deliver on their promises? Are they responsive when we need answers to make a decision? The answer to all of these questions is “YES” when you’re working with Sherry Labs. The customer service and analysts are outstanding and their reports are the best in the industry. We depend on Sherry as a partner, not just another supplier!

Every time we send out materials, Sherry delivers exactly what we want. Sherry’s customer service provides flexible, professional service that is closely tailored to our needs. The people that we deal with make the difference. In fact, I’ll make the 2 hour drive to deliver our samples when we need them to help us on a same day
or next day basis! Sherry Labs and their people have always been great to work with!!”

"As a 30-plus year customer of Sherry Laboratories, I’ve witnessed firsthand Sherry’s growth over the past 30 years as well as your enormous commitment to your customers’ success. I believe I requested my first test from your company either in the late 70’s or early 80’s when I was working with Copeland Corporation in Ohio. Thanks for all of your help. It has been a pleasure working with your group. Sherry Laboratories has always been professional, conscientious and reliable."

Jeff Most

"I have been using Sherry Labs now for 2 years. I started using Sherry when Jack Newell came in for a sales call and told us what Sherry could do for Alfe. I have to say I have been very pleased over the years. In the 2 years they have been on time for delivery 100% of the time. The web service they offer is above and beyond anyone else in the industry. Jack and the rest of the staff are helpful and go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. I would highly recommend Sherry and Jack Newell to anyone."
