H2I Group, Inc. announces the acquisition of NexLab Design, Inc. based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. NexLab Design is a full service laboratory casework and equipment dealer, in addition to providing services such as design, budgeting, custom specifications, site coordination, installation, training, testing, certifications, and support. NexLab provides services to institutional, educational, government, research and health care markets.

NexLab will expand H2I’s laboratory offerings in the South, with a specific focus on design capabilities. According to H2I Group President Paul Fedje, “this is an exciting opportunity to advance H2I’s lab footprint in the south. Partnering with such an established and experienced company has made this process smooth. NexLab has seen great success for the last 16 years, and we look forward to the opportunity to grow with them throughout the region. We welcome them to our team as employee owners!”

NexLab was founded in 2004 by Chris Neal, who says, “I have always enjoyed challenges, building things from scratch and have an entrepreneurial spirit. I had spent 10 years working for a Hamilton dealer when I was offered the opportunity to start my own dealership 16 years ago. It fulfilled the things I enjoyed and my entrepreneurial spirit.”

Chris says the partnership of NexLab and H2I Group was the right fit, as he’d worked in alignment with the leadership of H2I for many years. The opportunity to join a thriving ESOP culture was also a part of the decision. By joining H2I, they will have nationwide support and resources for their products and solutions. H2I Group gains an experienced team of laboratory specialists who understand the market and creating an exceptional client experience.
