Enva is an excellent and well managed business and will fit neatly into our current infrastructure. ALT is the only Irish owned Laboratory group in Ireland that has all island service levels and this purchase is a further demonstration of ALT’s commitment to servicing the Food Industry on the island of Ireland. It is an exciting time in ALT as we continually expand our service levels, laboratory infrastructure and presence throughout the entire island. With Brexit fast approaching it is vital that the Food Industry in Ireland has access to laboratory services that are located indigenously on the island and ALT are fully committed to providing these services.’
