Eurofins acquires Nab Labs an environmental testing company in Finland

Eurofins Scientific, the global leader in food and environment testing, announces that it has acquired Nab Labs Group Oy, an independent environment testing laboratories in Finland.

Nab Labs provides a comprehensive range of environmental research and testing services nationwide, with a strong competence in industrial process analytics and forestry sectors. Founded in 1968, the company employs over 100 staff and generates annual revenues in excess of EUR 9m.

Nab Labs’ operational and geographical footprint is complementary to Eurofins’ network in Finland. This acquisition therefore firmly consolidates the Group’s market leadership in environment testing, established following the recent acquisitions of Ramboll Labs, which hold a strong position in southern Finland, and Ahma, a leading provider in the north of the country.

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins CEO: “The acquisition of Nab Labs is another illustration of Eurofins’ commitment to consolidating the Group’s leading footprint in the markets where it operates. Together with the recently-acquired Ahma and Ramboll networks of laboratories in the country, we look forward to supporting these laboratories’ respective operations and further developing their capabilities to continue providing customers in Finland with the highest level of analytical service”.
