We are pleased to confirm that as part of our continued expansion in Europe, ALS has completed the acquisition of Felsilab s.r.l. in Bologna, Italy.
Founded in 1989, Felsilab offers a mixture of environmental testing and consultancy services through its team of 15 staff. It has established an enviable reputation as a high quality service organisation and is an important further step towards the establishment of a 'hub and spoke operation' in northern Italy, with its site in Zoppola acting as the hub laboratory.
ALS is now able to offer a full range of services to food growers, processors, distributors and retailers in northern Italy and serve both local and international clients.
Additional expansion is planned in Italy through greenfield development and smaller acquisitions as ALS looks to add further spokes to its operation.
