Consultant Services and Materials Testing Laboratory Create Change


Brian Petty eyes growth within the materials testing industry

SAINT CHARLES, IL. – January 25, 2012 – Materials Testing Laboratory and P. Brian Petty, founder and president of Consultant Services LLC, join forces to spearhead growth for one of our nation’s most trusted concrete and masonry testing centers.

During a business climate of constriction and flat-line growth, Brian Petty has a vision to deliver individualized, efficient, and comprehensive services to the concrete and masonry industry. This vision commenced in 2011 when he founded Consultant Services LLC. Petty continues to build his forward-thinking initiative with the strategic partnership of Materials Testing Laboratory of Schaumburg (Illinois). For nearly 25 years, Materials Testing Laboratory has provided efficient support to raw materials, chemical producers, and finished product manufacturers. Today, the Materials Testing Laboratory brand will have additional supports from the expanding Consultant Services Team to set the standard for materials testing on a nationwide scale.

The relationship between Petty and Materials Testing Laboratory began while Petty’s Packaged Concrete, Inc. trusted Materials Testing Laboratory’s services for his product testing. “At PCI, I believed in Materials Testing Laboratory’s testing methodology for our certifications.” Petty adds, “Materials Testing Laboratory and I understand the standards specifications as business owners our companies helped write ASTM C1714 Pre-Blended Dry Mortar Mix for Unit Masonry.” Consultant Services looks forward to synergizing three important components of the materials industry:

  • Knowledge and understandings developed during 27 years of business ownership of Packaged Concrete, Inc. (PCI)
  • Business and Materials Consulting Packages
  • Materials Testing Laboratory’s Materials Testing Capabilities

As a partner and vice president of Materials Testing Laboratory (, Petty and Materials Testing Laboratory will launch an aggressive rebranding of Materials Testing Laboratory. Petty shares, “This partnership allows Consultant Services to synergize consulting and testing services across a vast array of market segments ranging from admixtures, joint sealants, and epoxies, to repair mortars, grouts, and coatings” Mark Nelson adds, “No one in our industry is expanding. We look forward to using Brian’s experience to continue to strengthen our customer support, while solidifying our position as a leader in the construction materials testing industry.”
