Industrial Hygiene Air Testing
Galson Laboratories was founded in 1970 by Allen Galson. Allen recognized the need for industrial hygiene services to help industry manage environmental and occupational health risks, so he assembled a team of chemists to help companies comply with the new Occupational Health and Safety Act and emerging environmental legislation. The company grew steadily, responding to the increased regulatory requirements with new technologies and methods to meet the more stringent standards.
At the end of 1996 Joe Unangst, who directed the laboratory operations at the time, purchased the Galson laboratory operations. Joe focused the company on client service, continuous improvement process and on developing innovative programs to meet clients' needs, all of which have contributed to the continued success and growth of the company.
