Our Locations

Our head office and main laboratory, the Duke Street lab is where 350 of our staff are based. Four Hamilton locations were condensed into one bespoke, purpose built facility in August 2017. The lab is 7000m2 in size and accommodates our agriculture, environmental, food and microbiology testing laboratories, as well as all support services such as Administration and Finance, IT, Software Development, Commercial and Human Resources.

Our second largest site, the Waterloo Road lab employs 60 staff across agriculture, environmental and microbiology labs, as well as a smaller Commercial team.

The lab, based out in Grovetown Park, employs 10 staff who process wine and microbiology samples.

Opened in 2016, our Grafton Road lab processes Asbestos samples only. It is situated near the University, Auckland Domain and great cafes, and is close to good transport links.

Opened in April 2018, our Thorndon Quay lab processes Asbestos samples only. At the northern end of the city centre, the lab is close to the Beehive, Westpac Stadium and great cafes.

Opened in April 2020, our Mount Maunganui lab is purpose built for the maturity and leaf testing of Kiwifruit each season. The beach, bayfair and great cafes are only a short drive away.
