Eurofins reinforces Scottish Water Testing team
Eurofins Food and Water Testing UK has appointed a Business Development Manager to lead its commercial activity in the Water Hygiene market in Scotland.
Eleanor Murphy has enjoyed a successful career in microbiology and laboratory management and intends to grow the company’s presence in Scotland while enhancing customer service.
Eleanor will be based at our Water Hygiene Microbiology laboratory at Eurofins in Livingston, a new facility which opened in September 2017 following a £4 million investment.
Eleanor said her main objective was to use her 20-year laboratory experience to benefit current and potential future customers.
She added: “I look forward to working closely with the team at the Livingston laboratory to grow and develop the business and enhance the customer service offering.
“This is a really great opportunity to work in a state-of-the-art facility, with Jennifer Trainer, Laboratory Manager, and the brilliant team that’s already in place.”
Eleanor’s role will focus on work with water treatment and testing companies, providing microbiological and chemical analysis, and will seek to promote the global capability that exists within Eurofins Scientific and its more than 400 laboratories.
Eleanor will be an important part of Eurofins’ UK commercial team and report in to Ben Allison, Commercial Director, who said Eleanor’s role in Scotland was vital in helping the company further develop its water testing presence in the north of the UK.
Melissa Lane, General Manager for Eurofins’ UK Water Hygiene business, added, “We’ve appointed Eleanor with the very specific task of reinforcing our service offering in Scotland, and further enhancing our already excellent customer service record.
“I’m looking forward to working with Eleanor, and wish her every success in the role.”
Eurofins Water Microbiology and Water Chemistry laboratories provide UKAS accredited analysis to assess the safety of water in cooling towers, hot and cold water systems, closed systems and recreational waters such as swimming pools and spas.
