Eurofins Food and Water Testing UK & Ireland have announced the acquisition of independent contract testing laboratory Alliance Technical Laboratories (ATL) Ltd.
The move will enhance the company’s food, water and feed testing service provision in the South East and is part of its planned strategic growth agenda.
The Suffolk-based laboratory carries out UKAS accredited analytical testing of food, compost, effluents, digestate, water and animal feed and its location complements the current Eurofins UK footprint.
Alliance Technical Laboratories Ltd was formed by the merging of two laboratories (Alliance Technical Ltd and Gooch Garforth) in 2005. In 2012 the company became part of a larger group when it was purchased by Harlow Agricultural Merchants Ltd.
Eurofins Food and Water Testing UK and Ireland is made up of a network of world-class laboratories and is a world leader in food, feed and water testing, offering a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art analytical techniques to support customers’ increasingly stringent quality and food safety standards.
It employs more than 500 people and has recently invested £1.5 million on a two-storey extension to its laboratory and head office in Wolverhampton and £7m overall in new laboratories and laboratory extensions.
