Increasing its footprint in the US Midwest
Eurofins Scientific, a product testing and analytical company, is to purchase SF Analytical (SFA) Laboratories, for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition strengthens Eurofins' growing presence in the US, as well as expanding its current base of operations in the Midwestern US.
Founded in 1900, SFA Labs was relocated to a state-of-the-art facility in New Berlin, Wisconsin in 2008. The company is an independent commercial testing laboratory with multiple testing disciplines including food microbiology, food chemistry, consultative analysis, and environmental chemistry.
The laboratory offers a complete range of chemistry, nutrition, allergen, and microbiological testing for food processors and manufacturers, in addition to environmental and water testing.
'We're excited about becoming part of the global services of Eurofins, adding Wisconsin and the Upper Great Lakes Region to the multiple services offered,' said David Kliber, President of SFA Labs.
'We will retain the 114 year old Wisconsin brand, which will now be called Eurofins SF Analytical, and our established relationships and recognition will be seamless to clients and the community.'
He added: 'At the same time, the lab will now be able to serve more clients with greatly expanded capabilities on a regional and national level as part of the Eurofins network of laboratories in the US.'
