ACM Agro has clients across the Centre-Val de Loire, Ile-de-France and Pays de la Loire regions with accredited laboratories in Quiers-sur-Bezonde (Loiret) and Sablé-sur-Sarthe (Sarthe).

Our ambitions for ACM Agro have naturally led us to get closer to and join Mérieux NutriSciences which shares the values that have made ACM Agro’s success,” saidthe founders of ACM Agro.

Philippe Sans, president and CEO of Mérieux NutriSciences, said the acquisition will complete the geographical presence in France for industrial customers.

Mérieux NutriSciences said it will continue developing the two sites and extend the physico-chemistry range. 

The firm now operates nine sites in France strengthening its network of private analytical labs in the country.
