IEH Laboratories & Consulting Group To Open Scottsville, Kentucky, Facility Serving Food Industry
The new laboratory in Scottsville will be located on E. Locust Street, in the former Allen County Health Department building. The company will assist the food industry through consultation, research, product development, as well as the investigation of microbiological, chemical and toxicological issues.
“We are very excited to become a part of the Scottsville community,” said IEH President, Dr. Mansour Samadpour. “IEH prides itself on its analytical capabilities, providing companies with brand protection and consumers with the confidence they are feeding their families safe, wholesome food. IEH is also a critical partner in the production process, ensuring continuity and growth in the food production and distribution industry within Kentucky. We look forward to a long partnership.”
“Even more than the jobs created, IEH is a company that helps make other companies better, and that benefit will mean even greater things down the road for Scottsville and the Commonwealth,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “The food and beverage industry in Kentucky continues to expand, and this is a step forward to assist the industry and grow the economy in the Commonwealth.”
The Cabinet for Economic Development worked with the Allen County-Scottsville Industrial Development Authority and IEH in bringing this testing laboratory to Scottsville.
“Our region is well-regarded in the food and beverage industry, so IEH will certainly have no problem fitting in,” said Rep. Wilson Stone, of Scottsville. “I’m proud that it chose our community, and that it will give new life to our former health department building.”
Scottsville Mayor Rob Cline said; “Their presence will help our community with the testing of products to assure their safety, and also help Scottsville itself in the testing of our water and sewer treatments on a regular basis. We are thrilled to have IEH Laboratories become a part of our community.”
