Scientific Safety Alliance (SSA) Announces Acquisition of BME Lab and Science

Scientific Safety Alliance (SSA), a 100% founder and employee-owned scientific safety service provider, is excited to announce its acquisition of BME Lab and Science (“BME”).

Based in St. Paul, MN, BME has been a leading laboratory equipment maintenance and service provider to customers in the upper Midwest since 1981. The company offers a wide variety of services including preventative maintenance and calibration of autoclaves, centrifuges, balances, incubators, microscopes, pipettes, fume hoods, and spectrophotometers.

"I chose SSA because I wanted my employees and customers to be taken care of. In particular, SSA’s employee ownership program, robust benefits package, and focus on people stood out. This partnership enables my team to have more growth opportunities while continuing to provide the personal, small company service that my customers expect. " – Tom Holm, Former Owner of BME

"We are thrilled to welcome BME to the SSA team. BME will become SSA’s lab instrument division complementing CSI Testing and AT Analytical to better serve our Midwest customers. We are excited to onboard a talented team who will help us build this division with premium quality and customer service as our main priority. All employees will become SSA equity owners as part of our broad-based ownership plan – Esteban Ruiz, Co-Owner and COO of SSA.

SSA will continue expanding its presence through partnerships with leading service providers.
