Nelson Laboratories said it has acquired a new building adjacent to its current facilities that will accommodate its need for future expansion.

The Salt Lake City-based testing laboratory, which supports the development and production of medical devices, drugs, cosmetics and natural products, said the newly acquired 12,000-square-foot property is undergoing a renovation that is expected to be completed in April.

"This building acquisition will provide increased space to meet the growing demands of our clients, and will also allow us to add more of what our clients need," Jeffrey R. Nelson, president and CEO said in a statement announcing the acquisition.

He said the new location will be used for additional sterilizers and aging chambers for package testing. It also will provide additional space for testing products that are designed for reuse, such as cleaning, disinfection and steam sterilization tools used in hospitals.

Nelson said the company, founded in 1985, has a strong history of growth having roughly doubled in size every five years.

Its original facility with 24,000-square-feet was expanded to 62,000-square-feet in 2001. In 2010, the company completed a 50,000-square-foot bulding. With the addition of the newly acquired building, Nelson Laboratories now has over 122,000-square-feet of office and laboratory space.
