Eurofins Acquires TestAmerica
During the fourth quarter of 2018, Eurofins Scientific (Eurofins), announced that it has signed an agreement with the JSTI Group to acquire TestAmerica Environmental Services LLC (TestAmerica). TestAmerica operates a network of 24 testing laboratories and 40 service centers throughout the USA and employs over 2,000 staff.
The other domestic Eurofins laboratories (Eurofins – Lancaster, Eurofins Calscience, Eurofins – Spectrum, Eurofins Air Toxics, Eurofins – Eaton Analytical, Eurofins- QC, Eurofins – CEI, Eurofins ANA and Eurofins – Frontier Global) acquired over the last ~5 years have each operated independently as separate corporations and profit centers. In fact, the Eurofins laboratories compete with each other when receiving requests for proposals. By all accounts, it appears the same will hold true for TestAmerica maintaining its own identity and management structure.
