KSE Testing Equipment (KSE), a Kessler Soils Engineering Products, Inc. company, is located in Northern Virginia near Dulles International Airport. In 2019, we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary. KSE is a unique organization that not only manufactures and distributes testing equipment for highway and airfield construction but also provides services to our customers that includes on-site technical support and training by our Engineering staff.
The company started in 1994 manufacturing Dynamic Cone Penetrometers (DCP) under license from the U.S. Government using the US Army Corps of Engineers patented design. This design is required to meet ASTM D6951. We have grown and diversified by adding new products like the DCP Magnetic Ruler Data Collection Device which allows single person operation of the DCP because it automatically records the data and calculates the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) value and ultimate bearing strength. KSE has been the sole provider of Soils Test Sets for the US Marine Corps and US Army in the last 15 years.
