Company History

  In the late 1950's researchers at Texas A&M University developed recommendations for athletic field construction. In the early 1970's, Dr. Brown and Mr. Thomas conducted USGA funded research on the greens recommendations. They also were in charge of the USGA Greens Section Soil Testing Laboratory at Texas A&M University. When Texas A&M discontinued the service, Dr. Brown opened a lab to continue serving the turf industry.

  In 1992, the Turf Services Division was purchased by Mr. Thomas and incorporated as Thomas Turf Services, Inc. In July 1996, Thomas Turf Services was the second laboratory to be accredited in the nation by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) for the geotechnical evaluation of putting green materials. Mr. Thomas has provided soil testing, turf management, and greens mix design to clients world wide for over 30 years.

To better serve our clients, a sister company, Thomas Analytical Services, was formed in 1999. Specializing in soil fertility, soil salinity, tissue analysis and irrigation water quality analysis.

TAS specializes in soil fertility, soil salinity, plant tissue and irrigation water analyses. This provides you with "One Stop" shopping for all your chemical and physical soil testing needs.
