As announced by Industrial Growth Partners on February 12, 2018, SPL acquired the business and assets of Alcor Petrolab on January 31, 2018. The acquisition and consolidation of the Alcor Petrolab facility with SPL's facility in Pleasanton is the latest in SPL's continued efforts to provide best practices and excellence to the industry.
"This particular facility in Floresville is the original location where the business was founded back in 1968 as T&T Labs," said Nathhan Wicker, President of Alcor Petrolabs. "We've been here for 50 years —through name changes, expansions, and acquisitions. It will be hard to leave behind the memories, but we believe that this move is best for our clients."
The Pleasanton facility, located at 627 2nd Street, Pleasanton, TX 78064, will house both SPL and Alcor Petrolab employees and offer a wider range of testing services than ever before. As a complement to the full suite of services available from the SPL network, the Pleasanton facility will now offer testing services for refined fuels —provided by Alcor Petrolab.
"We are pleased to have Alcor Petrolab join us at the SPL facility," said Ian Milne, CEO of SPL. "By working together under one roof, we can provide the most comprehensive services available in the South Central Texas area."
