Eurofins expands its presence in India


Eurofins Scientific announces that it has acquired Spectro Analytical Labs Ltd. (“Spectro”), an environment, analytical product testing and inspection company in India.

The company has over 22 years of experience in quality testing and inspection-related services, and owns accreditations from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) in six fields: Chemical, Mechanical, Biology, Non-destructive Testing, Calibration and Electrical and Electronics. Starting from a small facility in New Delhi, Spectro has steadily achieved strong growth to become India’s leading environment and analytical laboratory with operations and joint ventures all over the country, catering to more than 8,000 customers. The company operates 5 state-of-the-art laboratories in India, with a total surface area of ca. 10,000 m2, and employs close to 450 staff.

The acquisition of Spectro will enable Eurofins to have a strong environment and analytical testing market entry in India and significantly increase Eurofins’ market position in this geographical region.

Comment from Mr. Kuldeep Dhingra, Spectro’s Managing Director: “We are delighted to become part of the Eurofins Group. We see tremendous growth opportunities in the Indian testing and inspection industry and are excited with the prospects of significant value creation for our clients and employees through access to Eurofins’ global network of laboratories, technical and financial competencies.”

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins’ CEO: “We are pleased to welcome Spectro, a prominent Indian testing services provider, to Eurofins’ family of businesses. Spectro’s broad range of testing and inspection services, combined with Advinus’ biopharmaceutical and agro sciences competencies that were acquired earlier this year and Eurofins’ existing genomics, food and clinical testing laboratories, will complement the Group’s analytical services portfolio and provide Eurofins with a well-balanced initial market presence in India. This transaction is another demonstration of Eurofins’ commitment to expand its global network of analytical services laboratories across all geographical regions where it anticipates significant growth.”
