Welcome 2024 | Spectra QEST 40th Anniversary | a message from the CEO

  • News

Thank you to all our customers for their support in 2023 and our team for their ongoing commitment and effort.

Spectra QEST celebrates forty years of continuous product innovation and service delivery to the construction materials testing industry this year.

In 2024, we will continue the evolution of the QEST Platform with the ongoing migration of functionality to the web app and the introduction of some great new features. 

We will also be reintroducing our annual user conference, held this year in Fort Worth, TX on February 22nd and 23rd. I am really looking forward to hearing from our featured (user) speakers, sharing our future product plans and, mostly, getting feedback on where we can do better.

I extend a huge thank you to everyone that has been a part of our success, especially to the customers that took a chance with a new business back in 1984 and all those that have put their trust in us since.  Last year more than 800 laboratories and 40,000 field, laboratory and portal users across seven countries used Spectra QEST products to help optimize their day-to-day operations.

To every team member past and present, whether you were with us for a short time or have committed a large part of your professional lives to working for Spectra QEST, we are grateful for your time and contribution.

Wishing you all the best for the new year.

-Dirk Janek, CEO of Spectra QEST
