Ann Arbor, Mich.-based NSF International has acquired the laboratory operations of Aurora, Ontario-based Jana Laboratories Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

Jana’s Aurora operations consist of a 20,000-square-foot lab that employs 14 people who provide testing for the global water and plastic-pipe industries.

Jana, an engineering and testing company, will retain the consulting and training portion of its business under the name Jana.

NSF said in a release that it plans to rename its acquisition NSF Janalab and integrate it into its network of accredited laboratories across North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

The acquisition expands NSF’s pipe testing capabilities, making it the largest provider of oxidative resistance stress testing in the world and the largest provider of hydrostatic performance stress testing in North America. Demand for such testing is rising with the increased use of plastic pipe for the distribution of gas, drinking water and wastewater worldwide, NSF said.
