Eurofins Scientific, Inc. (FP:ERF) acquired AvTech Laboratories, Inc., a premier contract research organization providing outsourced research and development laboratory services to the global biopharmaceutical industry. Eurofins Scienific, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, is a leading international group of laboratories providing a comprehensive range of bio-analytical testing and support services to the food, pharmaceutical and environmental industries.
"Had we not been proactive in the marketplace, Eurofins likely would have missed out on a high-quality acquisition that complemented our service offering to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The professionalism, timeliness and expertise of George K. Baum's professionals sets them apart in the field of potential services providers Eurofins could have used to help us build our business in North America."
