ACT Labs hired Cory Sutela to oversee engineering for the third-party testing lab group.

Sutela has Ph.D. in Engineering from Cambridge University (U.K.) and brings more than 15 years of bicycle testing experience to the ACT team.

Most recently, Sutela was employed at SRAM’s Colorado Development Center as a test lab engineer and operations manager in support of product development, and additionally has worked in the petroleum and automotive industries.

“Cory’s extensive experience and knowledge of bicycle component manufacturing, testing instrumentation, and data processing are all assets that will enhance ACT across the board,” said John Bogler, ACT Lab president. “ACT’s continued expansion of test service offerings in the cycling market, the strong emergence of electric products, and testing requirements for the outdoor, toy and other complimentary markets have made the time right to appoint an engineering leader to continue to move our goals forward.”

Sutela has also actively participated within ASTM, ISO and CEN product standards development committees.

ACT Lab’s specialties include mechanical and chemical testing of helmets, bicycles, bicycle components and accessories, scooters, sporting goods, children’s products, toys and more.
