In 1980, in the Province of Pordenone, LEOCHIMICA was born, an analysis laboratory with the aim of verifying the characteristics of local agricultural and food production. These were good places and times, marked by growing attention to the quality of crops and foodstuffs destined for consumer tables.
The years that followed saw LEOCHIMICA Laboratories grow steadily, expanding the range of services offered to businesses.
Indeed, the market required not only the results of testing tests, but support and advice, to adapt to new regulations and to the rapidly expanding productive and cultural progress.
LEOCHIMICA has therefore specialized in the field of consultancy, alongside this activity with an ever-increasing professionalism of the Test Laboratories, offering a package of services in the environmental, agro-food, health and safety sectors in the workplace and management systems.
LEOCHIMICA Test Laboratories were among the first at national level to obtain accreditation from ACCREDIA (No. 0157).
