" Eurofins New Zealand Laboratory Services, the local unit of the European listed company controlled by one of France’s richest families, posted a record profit last year as it continues to expand its lab testing services across NZ.

 

The Auckland-based company recorded a profit of $113,110 in calendar 2016, almost double the $58,488 it achieved in 2015 and the highest profit since it bought the laboratory testing firm in 2012, according to Companies Office records.

That 2015 profit was the first the company had turned for Eurofins. Revenue advanced 6.7% to $19.1 million.

The NZ laboratory testing firm had its origins as part of the Hutt City Council laboratory and was incorporated as a private company called Grayson Laboratories in 1995. It expanded through natural growth as well as the acquisition of other local laboratories until it was itself bought by the global giant Eurofins in 2012.

Eurofins was founded in 1987 by Gilles Martin in his hometown of Nantes to market technology created by his parents that helped ascertain the sugar content of wine.

The firm was publicly listed on Euronext Paris in 1997 and was now based in Luxembourg with a network of 310 laboratories across 39 counties in Europe, North and South America and Asia-Pacific employing more than 27,000 staff.

The Martin family, one of France’s richest, held 37.9% of the shares and controlled 56.5% of the voting rights of the company. Gilles Martin remained at the helm as its chief executive and chairman, according to the company’s 2016 annual report published last month.

When it bought the NZ unit, then called NZ Laboratory Service or NZ Labs, at the end of June 2012 Eurofins said it was the second-largest food testing laboratory network in the country.

It said the company was “an excellent strategic fit” with its growing Asia-Pacific presence and provided a solid entry into the region’s thriving food industry and a strong regional platform for the group’s capabilities in dairy and pesticides testing.

Since then the company had expanded its presence in NZ. Last year it opened satellite laboratories in Auckland and Christchurch and in July bought AgFirst Bay of Plenty, a leading fruit maturity testing laboratory with labs in Katikati and Te Puke, taking its network of laboratories in NZ to six.

AgFirst was founded over 20 years ago and provided independent kiwifruit maturation sampling and was also the leading provider of independent avocado maturation sampling and testing services.

The company said the acquisition complemented Eurofins’ existing competencies and reinforced the group’s network and analytical capabilities to better serve the food and agricultural industries in NZ.

“AgFirst Bay of Plenty will have access to the complete portfolio of Eurofins’ services, which should enable it to solidify its leadership in its key nice market and at the same time expand its service reach,” Eurofins said.

It renamed the unit Eurofins Bay of Plenty and said it would employ more than 250 staff at its busiest times.

Elsewhere, its Auckland laboratory had 140 staff serving the food, dairy and environmental industries, Wellington had more than 60 staff serving the food and environmental sectors, Rolleston near Christchurch could perform food and environment testing as well as auditing food and dairy factories and it also had an agriscience lab in Hamilton and an agriscience services organisation in Havelock North.

The company’s laboratory testing services offered in NZ spanned biofluids, drinking water, environmental water, sewage and effluent, trade waste, industrial, landfills, swimming pools, contaminated land and sampling services.

Eurofins said its global links offered NZ customers access to the world’s largest laboratory network.

The global company wasn’t just expanding in NZ, with its latest annual reporting noting it completed 27 acquisitions representing total annualised revenues of more than€220m last year to either strengthen its leadership in existing markets or further strengthen its expanding footprint in its newer markets.

Its global revenue rose to €2.54 billion from €1.95b the year earlier and the company said it was on track to reach €4b of revenue by 2020. "
