In Autumn 2012, Eurofins Agroscience Services increased it's already impressive global service portfolio by expanding into the Irish market with the creation of a new facility and team. Located at Castlecomer, County Kilkenny, the new facility is located in the South East of Ireland, approximately 90 kilometres South West of Dublin.
It's central location means that the main arable growing areas of counties Carlow, Kildare and Wexford are within easy access. It is also within easy reach of the M7/M9/M8 motorways ensuring reasonable travel times to Dublin, Cork, Waterford, Athy and Kilkenny.
A Unique Service Offering - the first agrochemical CRO to offer a truly global service
Part of the Eurofins Scientific Group of companies, Eurofins Agroscience Services aims to be the number one contract research organisation of its kind. Formed officially in 2007, Eurofins Agroscience Services has succeeded in acquiring some of the agrochemical industry's most highly regarded CRO's and laboratories. Whilst the resulting global offering from Eurofins Agroscience Services is fairly new, its constituent companies all have proven track records stretching back over more than 30 years, for providing their customers with high quality services in those areas in which they specialise.
Eurofins Agroscience Services now leverages the expertise and strengths of each to create a full portfolio of services for the agrochemical manufacturer. We aim to provide the industry with all the technical support needed to screen and develop, register and steward new and existing products around the world.
The World population is approaching 7 billion and with numbers rising by 211,000 people per day, more responsibility is falling to the Agroscience industry to provide effective, scalable food solutions.
