Manchester-based Trimega Laboratories is looking to rapidly expand its Local Government business, having achieved ISO 14001 certification.
The ISO 14001 standard, which is used by organisations to design and implement an effective environmental management system, is now often a pre-requisite for Local Authorities in the tendering process for new suppliers.
Trimega Laboratories is one of a very small number of specialist companies in the UK that test hair samples for evidence of alcohol or drug abuse. The vast majority of circumstances in which people are required to undergo a hair strand test in the UK are when a child care application is made to a Family Court by one of the UK’s 152 Local Authorities. As such Local Authorities and law firms from all over the UK send samples to be tested at Trimega’s new state-of-the-art facility at Hexagon Tower in Blackley.
Avi Lasarow, CEO of Trimega Laboratories, commented: “Not only does this strengthen the overall Trimega brand credentials but it also firmly raises the bar in the sector and is another step in showcasing the North West as a bio-technology hub. This signals a challenge to other testing laboratories to follow suit and contribute to a better environment. In the meantime, as the only substance abuse testing company to hold this accreditation, we look forward to helping many more Local Authorities as a direct result.”
