New Strategic Partnership Announcement
Today, DNB Engineering, Inc. and Experior Laboratories, Inc. announced a partnership with the mutual goal of offering the most comprehensive overall service portfolio and generating substantial impact for strategic proposals. The partnership promises to provide a superior client experience to our customers within the Aerospace, Military, Automotive, Telecommunication, and Medical industries.
This decision comes following extensive strategic planning by both organizations. The partnership gives DNB Engineering, Inc. the opportunity to expand its Vibration and Shock Testing service capabilities and gives Experior Laboratories, Inc. the opportunity to add capabilities in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), High Intensity Radiated Field (HIRF), Lightning, and Product Safety Testing services.
The new partnership is expected to spark innovation and dedication to solving our customer’s testing challenges and find solutions for all their qualification needs.
Both organizations are committed to working in close partnership to provide facilities for their customers where they will be able to obtain a qualified unbiased third-party product evaluation.
“We are excited about this partnership with the guys at Experior Laboratories, Inc. It gives us the ability to go after strategic large-scale programs that involve our expertise (Unrivaled Electromagnetic Compatibility, Lightning and HIRF testing) and Environmental, specifically vibration and shock testing for large test articles.” explains Tony Piraino, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at DNB Engineering, Inc.
“Executing increasingly large-scale component and system qualification test campaigns for the commercial and non-commercial space, as well as other industries, our customers are looking for a one-stop testing partner and our partnership with DNB Engineering will fill a very important void with their expertise in EMI/HIRF testing” says Roger Rutz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Experior Laboratories, Inc.

Experior Laboratories welcomes Andy Shiang, Ph.D. Engineering Manager
As the Engineering Manager, Dr. Andy Shiang will be responsible for leading engineering efforts to support the growing product qualification and testing business sectors.
Dr. Shiang brings over twenty years of specialized expertise in structural analysis, dynamics, and aerospace engineering. His most recent position has been at Aerojet Rocketdyne, where he worked on several large engine programs, laser and electro-optics, Kinetic Energy Weapons, energy systems, as well as the Commercial Crew Program. Dr. Shiang earned a BSME from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, as well as an MSME & Ph.D. from Lehigh University.
Experior Laboratories opened a state-of-the-art dynamics-testing facility as part of its campus headquartered in Oxnard California. The inaugural event on November 16, 2018 coincided with the company’s 15th anniversary and was celebrated with an open house for all staff, customers, vendors, and the press.
To facilitate the expansion, Experior Labs raised the roof on an 11,000-square-foot industrial space to 33 feet and included a 15-ton bridge-crane and two Unholtz-Dickie T4000 electrodynamic vibration systems that together produce 80,000 pound-force for testing heavy-duty equipment used on Rockets, Missile Systems, Trains, Satellites, and alike.
