Global Laboratory Group Opens Livingston Facility
A global group of laboratories present in more than 40 countries has today unveiled a new facility in Livingston, set to be one of the largest of its kind in the UK, and after investment of £4 million.
Bioanalytical testing specialist Eurofins Scientific has revealed the pharmaceutical chemistry, microbiology and water microbiology site after moving from Newbridge. It said the move provides greater capacity for the Eurofins Biopharmaceutical Product Testing business in the UK as it looks to double staff to more than 100, and housing new labs for Eurofins’ water testing business. Paul Wheelhouse MSP, minister for business, innovation and energy, was set to unveil a plaque marking the opening at Brucefield Industry Park. Luxembourg-based Eurofins Scientific, which internationally has more than 30,000 staff and annual revenues equivalent to more than £2.2 billion, said the new facility measuring 5,800 square metres will become one of the largest dedicated testing sites of its kind in the UK.
