ALS significantly expands its existing laboratory services in Northeast United States with addition of York facilities and teams in NY, CT and NJ

NYACK, NY (March 25, 2024) York Analytical Laboratories, Inc. has been acquired by ALS Limited to accelerate growth of their environmental testing services in the Northeast U.S. The addition of York’s market-leading operation – with more than 200 staff across four laboratories and four strategically-located service centers across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut – is the latest strategic acquisition by ALS in key markets around the world. With more than 19,000 employees and $1.5 billion in revenues, ALS’s new management team is focused on investing in people and systems to advance its environmental laboratory business, with a mandate to rapidly grow and become the leader in the U.S. environmental testing market.

“The acquisition of York Analytical enables us to grow quickly in the fast-emerging northeast U.S. environmental marketplace, where there continues to be significant investment in major infrastructure programs and widespread PFAS contamination issues,” says Malcolm Deane, CEO and Managing Director of ALS Limited.

“York entered the PFAS market early with the first PFAS lab in New York City and have built an impressive operation that we will help scale and accelerate. Combined with its impressive drinking water, air and full suite of environmental testing, and York’s relentless dedication to fully satisfying its clients, ALS+York will lead to even better, faster and more reliable service for all clients, both current and new.”

Critical to the deal is the retention of all of York’s employees, including its senior staff and its client-centric and culture-enhancing commitments. Integration of the teams and synergistic efforts have already begun and will be communicated to clients in the coming months.

Says Michael J. Beckerich, President and CEO of York Analytical: “With ALS’s focus on Northeast and the tremendous global resources they provide, our teams will combine with the dynamite ALS laboratories in Middletown, PA and Rochester, NY to quickly become the laboratory of choice for environmental professionals throughout the Northeast. The depth and scope of talent and resources across the ALS global network combined with our grassroots results-focused business model is going to have an immediate impact on client growth and satisfaction.”
