One of 3 potential providers, SYNLAB Laboratory Services was selected based on its approach, proven experience and the breadth of its services. Cullen continued “SYNLAB took the time to understand our business and needs. They provided a flexible solution that allows us to do as little or as much as we want to. A proven partner to our sister company, they were competitive on price, without compromising quality or our overall objectives.”
Two months into the partnership, SYNLAB Laboratory Services has trained 120 members of the team, enabling Bibby to carry out their own on site testing. A training video is also in progress, which will ensure that all members of staff are trained to the same high standard, and facilitate refresher training. Over coming months, Bibby also plans to roll out random testing.
