Eurofins Scientific (EUFI.PA), a world leader in bioanalytical testing supporting the entire food production chain, announces the acquisition of Bureau de Wit B.V.

Bureau de Wit operates a strategically-located laboratory in Almere, and employs 64 staff, generating annual revenues in excess of EUR 5m. The company provides food and water safety and hygiene testing, with a strong reputation in the hotel and catering sectors due to its innovative, client-friendly tools and state-of-the-art client portals. Bureau de Wit’s existing competencies are entirely complementary to Eurofins’ portfolio of services, which should result in substantial cross-selling opportunities. Furthermore, its laboratory’s central location provides a perfect fit with Eurofins’ existing geographic footprint in the country.

This acquisition further reinforces Eurofins’ leadership in the Dutch food testing market and broadens its client base. In return, Bureau de Wit will benefit from Eurofins’ industry-leading laboratory network, including access to the Group’s comprehensive analytical portfolio, as well as logistical infrastructure. The existing Management of Bureau de Wit remains in place and will continue to work on the growth of the Bureau de Wit business, now as part of the successful Eurofins organisation.

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins CEO: "This transaction further consolidates our leading footprint to support the food industry in The Netherlands. We look forward to giving Bureau de Wit’s clients access to the capabilities of the Eurofins network to support them in strengthening their quality and safety programs.”
