Eurofins reinforces Asia Pacific footprint with the acquisition of Mechem Laboratories in Singapore

15 March 2017

Eurofins Scientific (EUFI.PA), the global leader in food and environment testing, announces the acquisition of Mechem Laboratories (“Mechem”), one of the leading laboratory service providers in Singapore.

As one of the reference laboratories in the country, the acquisition of Mechem should accelerate Eurofins’ roll-out of its world-leading capabilities to serve the food and beverage industry in Singapore, as well as provide Eurofins a strong entry platform in the local environment testing market. In return, Mechem will gain access to the complete infrastructure and capability of the Group, which should allow substantial expansion of the range of services it offers to both domestic and international customers, thereby accelerating its market share expansion.

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins CEO: “The acquisition of Mechem is another demonstration of our commitment to the Asia Pacific region. We are looking forward to contributing to strengthening Mechem’s market position, as well as expanding the portfolio of tests it offers by giving it access to the full range of services and capabilities of the Eurofins Group.”
