When Alpha Analytical, the 7th largest environmental laboratory in the United States purchased Boston Analytical in 2009, they purchased a small laboratory started by a couple of college roommates over 30 years ago. Originally located in North Reading, Massachusetts that laboratory eventually become the current Boston Analytical located in Salem, New Hampshire. When Alpha Analytical purchased, it brought its wealth of laboratory operations experience to the team at Boston Analytical.
