Waypoint Analytical, the largest agricultural and environmental soil testing network in the U.S., announces its newest location in Champaign, IL. The new facility joins nine other Waypoint Analytical locations across the country providing next day testing service on routine soil and plant tissue samples, precision ag support and agronomic training, and a full range of agricultural and environmental compliance services through the company network.
“We are excited to open our doors in Champaign and look forward to providing analytical support to the deep-rooted agriculture community throughout Illinois, Indiana and northern Kentucky,” said Waypoint Analytical President/CEO Scott McKee. “Our Champaign location is the first new location to join us under our new Waypoint Analytical name — a name that we feel speaks to our ongoing advancements in laboratory management and proprietary technology to serve the needs of our customers worldwide.”
Six fulltime employees will join the new location with plans to add additional employees as the fall season approaches. A number of the new facility employees have been with the company for years. As well, all of the facility employees have received extensive training at the company’s Memphis headquarters.
An open house for the new location will be held throughout the week of August 24 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Guests can stop by to take laboratory tours, visit and meet the facility representatives. For groups of five or more, please call in advance to schedule a time at 217-359-7680
