58 MEA MARKETS / 2020MEA Business Awards , Best Quality Control Solutions Provider 2020 LS Scientific Limited Established in 2007, LS Scientific is dedicated towards providing quality control solutions for its clients. Following its well-deserved success in theMEA Business Awards 2020, we got in touchwith Olumurewa Odunjo to find out more about one of the best quality control solution providers in the industry today. As a technologically driven company, LS Scientific constantly stays informed and remain innovative by seeking better ways and approaches to assist customers in an ever-changing environment while reducing cost and wastage. Going into further detail, Olumurewa provides us with a brief overview of the firm and offers us more of an insight into some of its services. “LS Scientific is a quality control solutions provider with three onsite laboratories. In terms of products, our focus is on laboratory equipment, consumables, instruments, glassware, safety and PPE, furniture, chemicals, and microbiology media. Beyond this, our scope of services include calibration services, installation of laboratory equipment, laboratory design and construction, analytical laboratory testing and training.” In the field of quality control, the firm come up against several competitors across the MEA region. However, as Olumurewa goes on to explain, by maintaining its high standards and offering a full range of services, the firm has managed to stand out from the crowd. “Here at LS Scientific, quality is our slogan, and we embody this in all aspects of our work. Moreover, as the only company to have a certified laboratory while also seeking products, we are a one- stop shop for all solutions.” With a young and dynamic internal culture in place, staff get a chance to be a part owner of the business after five years of employment. Which is why, in its attempts to support this structure, the firm look to recruit the best emerging talent in the industry and have them join their ever-expanding team. “Young and forward-looking individuals who believe in science and the advantages that come with it are typically a good fit for us, so anytime a vacancy arises this is the approach we take.” Although the firm has reached a number of milestones during its time, the team have faced several challenges and in particular the outbreak of COVID-19, as Olumurewa points out. “Nigeria is a very large country with a strong population of 206 Million. The biggest challenge is the unavailability of funds for most organisations to purchase the most critical solutions for quality control due to scarcity of Forex and timely delivery as a result of national lockdown. Beyond this after overcoming an initial difficult period, we have seen opportunities turn to growth during the pandemic.” Nov20791 Bringing the interview to a close, Olumurewa signs off by revealing some of the exciting plans which lie in the pipeline for the team at LS Scientific in the years to come. “Moving forward, we will launch new certifications to ISO standards to further reinforce our scope of services and focus on quality control solutions.” Company: LS Scientific Limited Email: [email protected] Contact: Olumurewa Odunjo Website: Address: 50 Adeyemo Akapo Street, Omole Phase 1, Lagos, Nigeria
