LGC Standards has opened a new facility at Chamberhall Green, Bury, UK. The new, purpose-built site is situated adjacent to the new Greater Manchester Police divisional headquarters and will provide a centre of excellence for the operation of the company’s proficiency testing service.

“It is reassuring,” said Peter Fahy, chief constable of Greater Manchester Police, “to know that such a service exists to ensure that forensic testing laboratories supplying Greater Manchester Police can regularly monitor the quality of their results.”

Brian Brookman, general manager, LGC Standards Proficiency Testing, said, “This move to much larger, modern premises, housing our laboratory, despatch and administrative functions, is a key milestone in the development of our business. It will allow us to continue our growth plans, adding new schemes to our portfolio, and will give us the opportunity to further improve the service we offer to our customers.”
