Northern Balance joins Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) in latest acquisition

Northern Balance has announced its acquisition by Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) – the leading supplier of equipment, chemicals and consumables for laboratory use in the UK.

Northern Balance will continue to operate as an independent entity and retain all employees, whilst harnessing SLS’s business support and infrastructure to further extend its calibration, servicing and maintenance operations nationwide to benefit all parties, stakeholders and customers.

Daniel Egan-Sheath, Managing Director at Northern Balance, said: “We share a similar mission with SLS, and have closely tied values, focusing on delivering high quality services with the best possible customer service. This new working relationship with SLS will help us expand our capabilities and national footprint to provide a more thorough service to our customers.”

Ian Roulstone, Managing Director at SLS, said: “The addition of Northern Balance to the SLS Group will provide further opportunity for us to serve more customers with broad ranges of products and first-class service. The move also secures the roles of all existing personnel and will provide further development and recruitment opportunities within a growing organisation that is completely customer focussed. This is an important milestone for SLS Group and keeping the customer at the centre of our strategy will continue to drive us forward as we increase our product offering and expand into new markets and geographies.”
