St. C. Chamber welcomes ESL

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Environmental Service Laboratories, Inc., located at 47443 National Road West, held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.

“We are proud to make St. Clairsville and Belmont County a home for our laboratories here,” said Mike Moyer, Chief Operations Officer of ESL.

According to Moyer, Environmental Service Laboratories is a full-service lab and its headquarters are located in Indiana, Pa.

“We specialize in the analysis of drinking water, waste water and the soils,” said Moyer. “We have been doing a lot of work for the natural gas industry and we have been trying to perform that work out of our Indiana, Pa. office and we felt it necessary to actually have a local presence.”

ESL has been in business for 26 years and the St. Clairsville office is its fourth location and their first Ohio location.

“It has been very welcoming so far in this area and we certainly look to become a local asset and as well as an asset to our clientele,” Moyer said.

“As executive director (of the St. Clairsville Chamber) we are excited to have Environmental Services Laboratories as a new business in the area as well as all of the other business that are coming in and taking part in this ribbon cutting,” said Executive Director of the St. Clairsville Chamber Jennifer Woolland.
