New SGS Facility to Offer Expanded Environmental Testing Services in Chicago for Midwest

SGS is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the Forensic Analytical Consulting Services, Inc. (FACS) environmental laboratory located in Downers Grove, Illinois. This facility has been serving the greater Chicago and mid-west markets for over 30 years, and has now become part of SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection, and certification company.

The new SGS laboratory facility has been renovated to ensure a full service and state-of-the-art approach to the environmental solutions that SGS clients have come to expect. SGS Industries and Environment offers conventional environmental analysis, industrial hygiene testing, testing for the built environment, specialty analysis including emerging contaminants of concern as well as drilling and field services across the North American laboratory network.

“Customer experience is at the core of what we do at SGS,” said Marcus Maguire, Senior Vice President, Environmental, Health and Safety, SGS North America. “With this new lab in the Chicago area, we have the opportunity to broaden our reach while ensuring the same high quality of service for our current and future clients.”

At the new Chicago lab location, customers will be able to obtain supplies like bottleware with reduced sample volume (RSV) capabilities, pick up sampling media, drop off samples or schedule a SGS regional courier service. Additionally, this laboratory will continue to offer asbestos analysis with quick turnaround times which clients have come to rely on.

In summary, this new addition strengthens the SGS network of labs across the region. This addition also helps place our wide scope of environmental services closer to our customers.
