Our History


ChemServe Environmental Analysts was established in the early seventies around the time the EPA was established as a local laboratory serving primarily as a drinking water laboratory and moved to its current location in Milford, NH in 1986. At that time the focus of the laboratory turned towards serving the commercial, industrial and municipal markets. With significant growth over the late ‘80’s and early ‘90’s, ChemServe developed into a full-service environmental testing company. Our 21st century capabilities now encompass complete in-house laboratory services, field sampling services, groundwater monitoring, RoHS testing, CPSIA testing, and specialty analysis.

Since our founding in the 1970’s, ChemServe there have been major changes in the regulations and attitudes toward environmental compliance. ChemServe has expanded services available from our laboratory in line with changes to environmental legislation and community standards. ChemServe prides itself offering services to our customers that meet the changing needs and requirements mandated by federal, state and local regulatory agencies.
