Published January 16, 2017

LONG BEACH, Calif. (BRAIN) — Cory Sutela has joined ACT Lab to oversee engineering for the third-party testing lab group. Sutela has PhD in Engineering from Cambridge University (UK) and brings over 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. He also has worked in 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's 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. Sutela said, “I have always appreciated ACT’s professionalism and thoughtfulness, and been impressed to watch ACT grow to a first-class testing organization serving the bicycle industry, and I am very excited to join this growing dynamic team.”
