Southern Scientific Services, an Environmental Consulting and Testing company, is expanding its operations opening a third office in Tuam, Co. Galway. The company, which is based in Farranfore, Co. Kerry has hired three staff to run the facility, adding to the 50 employees already working at Southern’s two other facilities.
The Galway facility, located in the N17 Business Park, is the company’s first in Connaught and will support their customers in the North-West Region.
Southern Scientific monitors the drinking water supply for local authorities across Ireland on behalf of Irish Water. The company, which has 28 years of experience in independent water analysis, also works closely with clients in the agricultural, construction, environmental, food, and pharmaceutical sectors to support environmental compliance and product quality assurance.
Southern Scientific’s Operations Manager, Conor Murphy said, “We look forward to serving the Connaught region to help local authorities and businesses empower development while protecting our health and the environment. I’d also like to thank everyone who helped in getting this new venture off the ground. It’s an exciting time for Southern Scientific as we expand our offering to another part of the country.”
