News and Updates




AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2021 NOTICE!


We are happy to report that we have recently added new staff in several departments and are diligently making quick progress on grading for overdue Economy and Express tiers as well as processing all billing backlog. Additionally, we anticipate that our current physical expansion will be completed by next month, nearly doubling our existing casing and grading areas to allow for higher volumes and more employees. Our goal is to be operating under normal turnaround times by year's end.

We are also nearing the final stages of designing and testing our new website to improve every facet of the customer experience. Initially our new site will offer more information, an improved on-line store, and population reports.

  • While we plan on the incorporation of up-to-date population reports on the new site, we are currently exploring the feasibility of offering a BETA version of population reports on our current .NET website as well. Subsequent website additions will include an improved customer service interface and a streamlined submission process.
