President & CEO
Paul Chamberlain has a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Utah and is currently serving as President and CEO at LACO Technologies, Inc. He has over 24 years of continuous experience helping customers solve challenging production leak testing problems in a wide variety of industries. During this time he has designed leak testing instruments, turnkey systems, proprietary processes, and has authored a patented leak testing process. His expertise includes air leak testing methods, all types of helium leak testing methods and technologies, and non-helium tracer gas leak testing processes.
As new technologies are developed and more demanding performance is required of existing products, manufacturers are facing increasing challenges when selecting and implementing production leak testing solutions. Additionally, pressures to increase production rates and reduce costs continue to create challenges and opportunities for suppliers of leak testing equipment. The Electric Vehicle (EV) market, for example, has required innovating thinking to create effective leak testing solutions for battery cells as well as cooling circuits and battery trays. EPA requirements continue to put pressure on the design of refrigeration and air conditioning systems which can translate to new leak testing requirements. We will explore these challenges and touch on some of the innovations that will be needed to meet the market needs.
