The Tater family has been in the materials testing industry since 1958, combined, we have over 60 years of experience. Michael Tater took over the major operations of the business formerly know as Trinity Soils Investigation in 1994 after his father's semi-retirement. The name was officially changed to TSI Laboratories, Inc. in 2004. In November 2005, TSI purchased Trinity Testing Laboratories, Inc. in La Feria, Texas. This acquisition allowed the company to expand the service area further South. Over the next few years TSI continued to expand by adding office locations in San Antonio, Texas and Pasadena, Texas as well. In an effort to streamline the companies service area the decision was made to close the Laferia, San Antonio and Pasadena locations and in 2017 opened the location in Weatherford, Texas. TSI still has employees located in the San Antonio, Houston & Rio Grande Valley service areas which allows us to continue to provide excellent service to our clients all over the state.

We have provided our services for various types of projects including: Industrial, manufacturing, refineries, power plants, electrical transmission lines and substations, pipelines, water and wastewater plants, shopping centers, churches, schools, including colleges and universities, TX DOT projects, dams, flood control structures, ponds and levees. Many of our projects have required our technicians to be involved in full time quality control spanning 1 – 2 years.

We look forward to continuing to serve the geotechnical, construction materials testing, and environmental engineering testing needs of our clients.
