Headquartered in Daleville, Sherry does lab testing, and has worked with over 6,000 clients in industries such as aerospace, defense, oil, transportation, environmental services and food.

“We decided to join Element because they share our common goals of delighting customers through consistent on-time delivery, industry leading turn-times, quality of services and the overall customer experience,” Sherry said in a release. “And as we continue to grow with our customers on an international scale, we felt that it was time to join a company that already operates globally and  that can bring immediate benefit to our customers.”
