JWOD advises on strategic acquisition of Irish food testing company

J.W. O’Donovan Partners John Sheehan, John Fuller, David Pearson and Ciara McDonnell recently advised on sale of a majority holding in Advanced Laboratory Testing to Mérieux NutriSciences, as Mérieux seeks to expand its footprint further in Europe.

Mérieux NutriSciences is a world leader in the field of Food Safety and Quality, while Advanced Laboratory Testing is a leading player in the food testing market, and was first established in Kildare, in 2013.

Mérieux’s acquisition of Advanced Laboratory Testing marks the company’s entry into the Irish food safety market. The announcement is a continuation of a trend seen in the last two years of companies based on mainland Europe purchasing entities in Ireland for the purpose of expansion.
