Galson Laboratories Purchases Charleston, SC Laboratory
East Syracuse, NY - Galson Laboratories, a full-service, fully certified industrial hygiene laboratory, has purchased Azimuth Laboratories of Charleston, South Carolina. Galson will continue to serve Azimuth customers through its newly established Client Service Support Center in Charleston. Tonya McGuiggan, formerly of Azimuth, will run the Support Center.
Azimuth served customers in the southeast US since 1984. According to Galson president Joe Unangst, he was attracted to the company because, like Galson, Azimuth has a long-standing reputation for high quality analytical services. "We’re fully confident our new customers will find Galson Laboratories to have an exceptionally strong commitment to quality and customer satisfaction," Unangst said.
According to Unangst, new customers will also benefit from Galson’s guaranteed five-day turnaround time and free air sampling pump loan program. "And, he said, "we assure 100 percent satisfaction or our customers don’t pay."
Galson is currently serving customers throughout North America and in Europe. Unangst said that the opportunity to open a Support Center in Charleston allows Galson to work closer with many of its customers. "We’ll continue to seek any opportunity to serve our customers better," he said.
