Thanks to you all, we were able to celebrate AppliTek’s 30th birthday back in 2015. Also, 2016 was remarkable in that respect that we were the first company worldwide that got certified ISO 9001-2015. In 2017, finally, we were acquired by Hach company.

“I am proud of what we have accomplished at AppliTek, starting with my father and mother in 1985, and continuing through this year,” said former AppliTek President and CEO David Laurier. “I am thrilled to have AppliTek join Hach, as they are an ideal partner to help us scale globally and to continue to invest in our technology. This is a great opportunity for AppliTek employees to join an industry leader, as I’m confident Hach will build on the recent momentum for years to come.”
