We are happy to announce that effective immediately, Gibraltar Laboratories has been acquired by Sotera Health, LLC; the world’s leading, fully integrated protector of global health. Gibraltar Labs will become part of Sotera Health’s Nelson Labs business unit.
Gibraltar Labs has worked very hard to earn an outstanding reputation for providing superior customer service, technical expertise, and quality performance. We know that Sotera Health holds the same values and also has a stellar reputation. Sotera Health’s mission, Safeguarding Global HealthTM, aligns perfectly with the work we have performed for years. By joining Nelson Labs, we become part of a world-class testing organization with a global presence and industry-leading thought leaders.
Nelson Laboratories, LLC is the leading provider of global lab testing and expert advisory services. Nelson Labs performs over 400 microbiological and analytical laboratory tests across the medical device, pharmaceutical and tissue industries. The company is regarded as a best-in-class partner with a strong track record of collaborating with customers to solve complex issues.
Our expertise in pharmaceutical products, microbiology, and analytical testing will augment Nelson Labs existing strengths in medical device testing and expert advisory services as well as complement their Nelson Labs Europe’s expertise in extractables and leachables and materials characterization testing. Our combined strengths will enhance the ability of our customers around the world to bring their products quickly and safely to market
Nelson Labs is committed to being a thought leader in the industry. They strive to be at the forefront of new technologies, the most current thinking, and to provide the highest levels of quality, science, service, and expertise. As we join with Nelson Labs in this commitment, we will continue to build on our long-standing reputation of excellence and continue to expand our offerings for you, our customers.
I will continue with Gibraltar Labs in the role of Chief Scientific Officer and Jozef Mastej will maintain his role as VP of Operations; we will both report directly to Jeff Nelson, President of Nelson Labs. The team you know and trust will also stay intact. At this time, Gibraltar Labs will continue to function as a standalone business unit of Nelson Labs; though we will continuously collaborate to ensure the sharing of best practices, and to capture the best possible synergies for our customers.
The acquisition of Gibraltar Labs does not include Prince Sterilization Services, LLC. However, Gibraltar labs will maintain a partnership with Prince Sterilization Services to provide the testing needed to certify their products.
Nelson Labs’ business unit headquarters are located in Salt Lake City, UT, USA; however, our operations will stay in Fairfield, NJ, USA. Your contacts at both companies will all remain the same as they are today. We will continue to update you about new services and options as we integrate Gibraltar Labs and Nelson Labs services and systems. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to speak with our Customer Service team.
Daniel Prince, Ph.D.
Chief Scientific Officer
