About UsACE Laboratories

ACE Brings Innovation in Technology & Services to the Rubber and Silicone Markets
ACE started as a one-man operation in Akron, Ohio in a 2000 square-foot facility. It grew quickly as ACE found client after client in need of a new laboratory that provided high-quality products and services to an ever-changing industry.
Within two years, ACE expanded and moved into a 220,000 square-foot building in Ravenna, Ohio with a talented team of professionals. The move provided ACE with the space to grow and broaden their offerings.
In 2018, ACE earned a coveted ISP/IEC 17025 accreditation, one of the most important standards for testing for laboratories around the world. Laboratories with this accreditation have proven capabilities to provide accurate, precise data and testing.
CEO and founder, Erik Sharp, has a passion for innovation and has instilled this value in his team. ACE continues to expand its capabilities and offerings, making them an industry leader.
In addition to providing research, development, and testing, ACE partners with colleges and high schools to offer an inside look at a globally renowned laboratory, hoping to bring fresh ideas to the industry.
