AcmeLabs announces new Vancouver Laboratory and Head Office

April 11th, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VANCOUVER, BC –  AcmeLabs is planning to amalgamate all Lower Mainland operations into its new head office in South Vancouver. This new global headquarters will open early in 2012 and comprise over 130,000 square feet of laboratory, warehouse and underground parking facilities. AcmeLabs is one of the world’s leading geochemical and assay testing services with offices in North and South America as well as Turkey.

“The new flagship lab is over twice the size of our current combined facilities,” explains President George Cartwright. “It will operate using the highest environmental and safety standards to ensure it is a superb workplace for our employees. We’re very pleased to say this will be one of the best equipped mineral testing facilities anywhere and possibly the largest multi-element geochemistry lab in the world.”

The current resurgence in the exploration and mining sector has increased demand for quality analysis and labs are growing in order to keep pace with global demand. “We planned this expansion quite some time ago in order to maintain our position as an industry leader and to ensure our high standards of service to customers around the world well into the future,” states Cartwright. ‘We’re very proud to be able to offer this level of excellence right here in Vancouver.”

Beginning in 1971 as a family operated private business, AcmeLabs has grown to become recognized as one of the world’s leading geochemical and assaying laboratories. The company is employee-owned, and operates 26 offices in 11 countries, with a substantial new laboratory in Ankara, Turkey, which commences operations on April 15, 2011 as well as a large regional laboratory in Santiago, Chile serving South America. This expansion and upgrading is part of AcmeLabs’ ongoing commitment to continuous innovation and unparalleled global customer service.
