Glossary

VFA Engineering Group was founded in 2000 in Nashville, Tennessee. We do all your failure analysis work ourselves, and nothing will be outsourced to a third party without your knowledge. We also don't show you the backgrounds of a few senior people and then give the work to someone with far less experience. The people shown here will be the ones working on your project. In addition to our main office in Nashville, where most of our engineers are located, we also have a lab in Terre Haute, Indiana. Here are the VFA Engineering personnel who will work on your project.
