Mobile drug testing doesn’t just affect businesses, it affects families. One family in Grand Rapids, Michigan is making it their business. The Kantolas – Joel, Brandon, and Corey are father and son trio, launched USA Mobile Drug Testing of Grand Rapids to provide workplace alcohol and drug testing services to area businesses.
The Kantolas are targeting small businesses. According to them, “Small businesses, which are less likely to have substance abuse programs, are most likely to be an employer of choice for individuals with substance abuse issues.” This is very true. The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that over 75% of illicit drug and alcohol users are employed. Small businesses may overlook instituting a drug-free policy because it’s too expensive. They have to send employees out to the testing site and pay them for the missed time. Not anymore. USA Mobile Drug Testing is the newest company cornering the market on mobile. That’s what sets them apart from the rest. They come to you. The Kantolas are spreading USAMDT’s influence on a national level and offering a solution to drug abuse on a local level.
Between the three of them, the Kantolas share over 50 years of years of business expertise. Brandon Kantola has a bachelor’s degree from Grand Valley State University in criminal justice. He’s spent more than 10 years working with the court system in Michigan, which includes work as a probation officer and urinalysis technician. Corey Kantola also has a degree from Grand Valley State University with a double major in finance and marketing. He has 11 years of experience in consumer finance and retail.

This powerful partnership doesn’t go without local and national accreditation.
