Cawood takes over Sci-Tech

Cawood Scientific has purchased Sci-Tech Laboratories for an undisclosed sum.

The announcement was made this week. Sci-Tech is the latest company to become part of the Cawood Scientific Group, joining, NRM Laboratories and Sciantec Analytical Services.

Sci-Tech operates from a laboratory based in Craven Arms, Shropshire. It employs 22 people and is particularly well-known for its a fast, efficient and accurate testing service for the UK poultry sector.

“The move further strengths the Cawood Group’s position as the UK’s largest truly independent provider of accredited analytical laboratory testing services for the land-based sector,” explained Group Managing Director Nigel Patrick. “It is in line with our strategy to grow the business by searching out like-minded operations where the emphasis is on both quality of customer service and accuracy of testing results. Sci-Tech is very highly regarded within its specialist field of operation making it an excellent fit with the other Cawood Scientific businesses,” he added.

Commenting on the decision Sci-Tech Director Rob Harrison said: “The ethos of Sci-Tech is very similar to Cawood’s. Both are very quality driven and very customer focused. Good service in the analytical sector is as much about accuracy as it is about speed of delivery.”
