Dr. Harvey West joined the ISE staff in August, 1997 bringing an impressive background in materials science and testing research to the new position of Furniture Testing Laboratory manager. Harvey proceeded to create one of the finest furniture testing labs in the United States. Today that lab is better equipped than ever, and the demand for furniture testing continues to grow. His material science background and additive experience (Harvey’s been involved with our additive metals activity from Day One) also makes him a highly valuable resource for our materials research activities.
