In 1995 I moved the Pacific Coast Branch of A.G.A Laboratories from East Los Angeles to Irvine in Orange County, CA.  This "recognition" photo is ironic since Spence Grieco fought this move and put numerous obstacles in the way.  This move was the hardest thing I did during my 36-year work career.  The company name was changed from A.G.A. Labs to International Approval Services (IAS) as the organization formed agreements with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).  [JAM 6/12/2020]
