On 2 February 1975, Punxsutawney Phil—the famed oracle groundhog of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania’s annual Groundhog Day celebration—stepped into the open air but did not see his shadow. The prediction: an early spring. This was not the only good news of the day.
In Austin, Texas on that same day, Dr. J. Scott Thornton founded the company that became Texas Research International, Inc. TRI Air Testing was there in the beginning and served as one of the chief drivers in the organization’s establishment.
Today, TRI is a diverse technology, scientific and services company; and TRI Air Testing remains a central component. We are proud to be part of this history of success, which now includes multiple sister companies interacting in a broad range of industries.
We thank our customers for being part of our story.
