Founded in 1986, AccuStandard has grown from two to the current team of 65 people. The company started in a small business incubator co-sponsored by Yale University, The City of New Haven and the State of Connecticut at the former site of Olin Chemical Company in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. Outgrowing that facility, AccuStandard moved across town in 1998 into a fully modernized facility of 37,000 square feet of laboratories, office and storage space. AccuStandard is now one of the leading companies in the field of Chemical Reference Standards. AccuStandard ships products to over 108 countries and maintains a distributor network in 65 of those countries. Since its beginning, the product line has grown to include over 11,000 Reference Standard products and twice that number of special formulations which have been developed for specific customer needs. Standards include those for analysis of the most important EPA Methods, Pesticide Residue Screening, Flame Retardants, Biofuels, Plastic Additives, Dyes, Explosives, UOP and ASTM Methods and up-graded products for PIANO and Physical Property analyses.
