A&L Great Lakes has been providing agricultural testing services for over 40 years. However, it didn’t take us long to realize that the work we do extends well beyond test results and analysis. It impacts lives. That’s a big responsibility, but also a great opportunity. With accurate testing and quality analysis, a commitment to doing the right test, the right way, each and every time, and a uniquely personal approach to service, we’ve seen what kind of positive difference we can make in the lives of our clients. It’s an opportunity we appreciate every day.
A&L Great Lakes was established in 1976 to provide agricultural analyses to the Great Lakes region. Originally, A&L Great Lakes was part of a network of A&L laboratories that included nine different facilities around the country. In 2002, we became our own independent lab, but we still enjoy a cooperative relationship with the original labs of the A&L group.
Since becoming independent in 2002, we’ve been committed to staying at the forefront of the agricultural services industry. We’ve continually expanded our testing and analytical capabilities to include all of the latest technologies as well as a wide variety of sample matrices including soils, plants, feed, fertilizer, manures, and composts. Along with a growing menu of services, we have hired some of the finest agronomists and lab technicians available to work out of our 22,000-square-foot laboratory located in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
As much as things have changed in A&L Great Lakes’ 40-plus years, the one thing that hasn’t is our commitment to our customers. We’re not a group that coldly crunches numbers in a lab. We like to establish personal relationships with our customers, engage with them, and ultimately do whatever it takes to help them make their best and most informed decisions. In addition to the accurate and timely analysis that we deliver, it’s this personal approach that really seems to define A&L Great Lakes. We’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. That’s why many of our customers have been with us for more than 30 years. We look forward to at least another 30 great years to come.
