In order to answer demand for their rapidly growing product line, LECO's entire Separation Science group relocated to its brand new Life Sciences & Chemical Analysis Centre on July 12, 2007. This state-of-the-art, 11,500 square foot building is now LECO's world headquarters for Separation Science sales and applications?providing support, method development, sample analysis, and instrument demonstrations to new and current customers. In addition to offices and cubicles, the Centre has several conference rooms and classrooms equipped with the latest technology designed for customer training and demonstrations.

"Our new facility enables us to operate a full-time laboratory and demonstration facility, something we didn't have the space for in our old building," said Mark Libardoni, Director of Technical Applications. "The proper utilities have been installed so that we are equipped to house up to 16 instruments across our entire product line."

The new Centre is conveniently located on Hilltop Road in St. Joseph, just a quarter mile west from LECO's main administration building.

Previously, the Separation Science lab and group was in a much smaller building that used to be home to a bank. Spread across two floors, applications chemists had to be upstairs to work on their instruments, and downstairs to have access to their offices. In the Centre, all work space is on one floor, making the workflow much more practical and work spaces much more accessible.
