Environmental Sciences / Pace Analytical Announces National Center for Testing and Innovation

Minneapolis, MN: Pace Analytical Services, LLC, a national leader in analytical testing, has announced today that it is changing the name of its subsidiary, ESC Lab Sciences, to the Pace Analytical National Center for Testing & Innovation. The new name emphasizes this location’s commitment to providing environmental testing services on a national scale, its commitment to research and development, and its leadership role in identifying the most advanced, efficient and reliable testing methods in the industry.

“The name ‘National Center for Testing & Innovation’ allows us to highlight this lab’s unique ability to serve customers anywhere in the United States” said Steve Vanderboom, President and CEO of Pace Analytical. “Our combination with ESC one year ago has proven to be very valuable to our customers, and we are excited to complete the name and logo change to make this fantastic operation completely integrated with the Pace family. We are also excited about the stream of innovations they are developing.”

Combined, what Pace Analytical can do for customers is unrivaled.”
