Environmental lab opens in Hartland

Hartland-based Express Analytics LLC has been certified as an environmental lab by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The certification allows Express Analytics to work with a wide variety of businesses in the compliant laboratory analysis of water, waste water, solid and hazardous waste. Testing is required for many industries, public and private, because of the waste that ends up in waterways or landfills. Testing is also required for any business or municipality that provides or manages drinking water. Those industries are regulated for the safety of the general public and the environment as a whole by the State and Federal government. Private residential home owners test their wells to ensure the safety of their drinking water source.

Express Analytics owners Karri Warnock, from Marshall, and Brian DeJong, from Jefferson, were colleagues at a laboratory in Watertown that closed in April of 2012. Both said they recognized a gap in service in southern Wisconsin for full-service laboratory testing. They hope to hire up to 20 employees.

Express Analytics operates out of a 12,600-square-foot facility at 600 W. North Shore Drive in Hartland.

The building houses six separate laboratory spaces with additional space for future growth.

“In this industry, it’s all about accuracy, turn-around-time and price,” Warnock said. “In addition to that, we will communicate better with our clients because we know they do not want any surprises and we want to exceed their expectations.”
