The purchase is the third such acquisition completed in the food, water and environmental testing sector in the UK and Ireland in the last 18 months and will become the business hub in Scotland for the Eurofins UK food testing operation.
Phil Coles, Managing Director, Eurofins Food and Water Testing UK and Ireland, said that adding the company to the Eurofins portfolio underlined a strategy to extend its reach, and the services offered.
He added: “Demand for specialist food testing has grown as organisations look to meet the requirements of increasingly stringent national and international legislation.
“This move positions us as one of the leading providers of food and water analysis in the UK and Ireland and Ashwood’s broad expertise in food microbiology and chemistry testing will contribute to the expansion of Eurofins’ food testing portfolio, the most comprehensive range of state-of-the-art analytical food testing methods in the world.”
