Pace Analytical, the second largest environmental testing firm in the U.S., announces the acquisition of Belmont Labs, a full-service environmental testing laboratory located in Englewood, OH. Belmont is a leading testing source for groundwater, wastewater, drinking water and bacteriological samples in Ohio.

Belmont Labs has been providing analytical testing services to environmental markets since 1990 and has earned an outstanding reputation for building a strong, loyal customer base.
