ManagedLab Services (MLS) is pleased to join Flagship Facility Services, a facilities maintenance solutions company headquartered in Southlake, Texas. Flagship’s acquisition of MLS was finalized on Wednesday, May 3.
Flagship offers a comprehensive portfolio of facilities services available on an à la carte basis, including janitorial, building engineering, HVAC and boiler maintenance, project and vendor management, environmental health and safety services, mechanical/electrical/plumbing, space management, and culinary services, for organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
MLS will join Flagship Lab Services, the business unit focused on meeting the needs of early-stage Biotechs on both the East and West coasts. The company’s primary services include vendor-managed inventory, lab support, project management, and IT operations.
This acquisition will expand Flagship’s Biotech/lab services portfolio while offering additional lab support to clients nationwide. That, along with MLS’ vendor-agnostic approach, provides a robust portfolio of data that allows key department heads (Procurement, Facilities, Health & Safety, Lab Operations, and Scientists) to make forward-thinking decisions based on real-time insights.
“We are excited to join forces with Flagship and its Lab Services unit!” said Taylor Moyer, President and Founder of ManagedLab Services. “We believe that our data-driven approach to lab support services, combined with Flagship’s robust facilities maintenance offerings, is perfectly suited to early-stage Biotechs.”
Flagship also recently acquired Biotechnical Services, Inc. (BTS), an independent lab services company specializing in lab equipment repair, calibration, and maintenance.
Building on the experience gained through these alliances, Flagship Lab Services offers lab support to meet the specific requirements of Biotech start-ups as they progress from R&D through GxP.
“Flagship Lab Services supports early-stage Biotechs throughout their evolution and their funding rounds,” said Dave Pasek, Flagship CEO. “We have deep insights into the challenges that these researchers face, and we are committed to providing them with the resources and expertise they need to succeed at every stage of their journey.
