A new era for Chemtest



It is now more than 12 months since Chemtest became part of Eurofins, the world leader in food, environmental & pharmaceutical testing, and a company employing over 47,000 staff across a network of more than 800 laboratories, in over 50 countries.

During this time, amazing things have been happening at Chemtest, and a huge programme of investment has been begun in people, equipment, systems and processes.

Highlights to date

  • Investing £1.6M in new laboratory instrumentation
  • Expanding Newmarket HQ and increasing sample capacity by 100%
  • Commencing a 2-year business transformation initiative using LEAN and 5s techniques
  • On time delivery of results has increased by 25%
  • Leadership & Technical Teams have been strengthened with key appointments

Looking to the future

Notwithstanding the current coronavirus pandemic, which has seen Chemtest and Eurofins colleagues work together to support each other, and our clients, we believe that now is the time for Chemtest to take the next step on it’s exciting journey as part of Eurofins.

We are therefore pleased to announce that, with effect from 1st July 2020, we will be changing our company name to Eurofins Chemtest Ltd, and adopting a new “Eurofins Chemtest” brand.

Although we are proud to adopt the Eurofins name and branding, we also recognise the history and tradition associated with the Chemtest name.

Our service

On a practical level, there will be no other changes taking place and you will continue to trade with us on the same basis as you do at present.

In this respect, it really is business as usual for us here at Eurofins Chemtest, and we look forward to being of service to you for many more years to come.
