Tim Robinson, CEO LGC, said: “LGC’s business continues to grow strongly with increasing coherence between our product lines and customers. This has been evident through the current COVID-19 pandemic, where teams across many of our operational sites have been working together to deliver innovative, integrated solutions to our customers globally. The appointments announced today bolster our ability to support our customers with the full range of existing capability, and augment and strengthen the existing leadership team that has delivered value to all stakeholders over many years.”
