Eurofins Product Testing Lux Holding SARL has acquired the entire share capital of York EMC Services (YES) Ltd from The University of York.
YES was formed in 1995 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of York and has developed into a leading provider of regulatory compliance products and services in both the UK and overseas. It has laboratories in Grangemouth in Scotland, Castleford near Leeds and Yate near Bristol as well as an office on the University of York campus.
The Eurofins Group is a leading provider of analytical services with an international network of over 310 laboratories across 39 countries in Europe, North and South America and Asia-Pacific.
Chief Executive of YES, Nick Wainwright, commented:
“YES has grown rapidly over the last 5 years and we have made significant investments in our laboratories and our products and services. By joining the Eurofins family, we can ensure that this momentum is maintained and that our business continues to develop so that we are even better able to meet the global regulatory compliance needs of our customers in the future.”
Vice President of Consumer Products Testing at Eurofins, Stephane Barrau, commented:
“We are very pleased to welcome York EMC Services to the Eurofins Group. York EMC Services provides Eurofins with a very good entry into the E&E testing market in the UK and reinforces our footprint in Europe after the recent acquisition of the Swiss leader Electrosuisse E&E Product Testing. We are looking forward to contributing to, and strengthening York EMC Services’ position in its market, as well as expanding the portfolio of tests it offers to customers by offering the full range of services and capabilities of the Eurofins network.”
