Have you noticed the large new MVTL building on Front Street? The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce stopped by to see it and to congratulate Minnesota Valley Testing Labs on their new space! MVTL does testing in four areas: food science, agriculture, environmental, and energy. The new building focuses on testing soil, feed, plant materials, and manure. This large new space (36,000 square feet) means they are able to consolidate previous operations from three different buildings into one. In 2017, MVTL did work for clients in 48 states, 4 Canadian provinces, and 5 countries. Their quick turn-around time makes them a solid competitor for testing labs around the world, but the majority of their work comes from the Midwest. MVTL employs 170 full-time employees from a variety of backgrounds and education levels. Congratulations on your new space, and thank you for your investment in the New Ulm community!
