CEO of hrl:, Ken Jefferd, said, "We at hrl: are delighted to announce the transferal of ownership of our gas appliance testing laboratory to such a distinguished business in IAPMO. We've worked tirelessly over many years to create a top-class, NATA-accredited gas appliance testing laboratory of which we're very proud, enabling businesses to obtain certification and get their products to market faster than ever before. 

However, under new ownership, hrl: is now focused on its specialism in power generation, providing leading testing, engineering, and innovation services. By partnering with IAPMO and transferring the ownership of our gas appliance testing laboratory, we're putting a valuable asset and capability in the right hands and, at the same time, enabling us to focus on our core business. We look forward to seeing IAPMO leverage the asset to significantly grow its testing and certification capability for the benefit of its customers."
