- Brief history of the Business
EMTEK, LLC develops and manufactures air sampling products for the detection of bacteria and mold in clean room and other critical environments within the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, hospital, pharmaceutical compounding, food and dairy industries. The industries served by EMTEK, LLC (EMTEK) must maintain stringent control on their critical environments to protect their products and patients. As such, these industries are continuously seeking products that may aid in monitoring their environments for contaminants. In addition, many of the industries that EMTEK serves are required under regulatory requirements to perform the type of sampling for which we develop and supply products. This provides EMTEK with a continued opportunity to provide products for use in monitoring these environments.
EMTEK came into existence in January of 2009 when Erik Swenson, the founder of Environmental Monitoring Technologies (EM Technologies, EMT) moved the structure of the business from a sole proprietorship to a Limited Liability Company, or LLC, EMTEK, LLC. As such, EMTEK is essentially EM Technologies, but under a new business structure. It carries, maintains and supports the full line of air sampling equipment originally developed, patented, manufactured and sold by Erik Swenson under his sole proprietorship as EM Technologies, which was in existence from 1997 to January of 2009. Erik Swenson is the Managing Member and Vice President of Operations of EMTEK, LLC, and has over two decades of experience in the environmental monitoring field of microbiology and is considered to be a specialist in the field, and still has substantial ties within the industry. This “hands-on” and “real life” experience has allowed, and continues to allow, EMTEK to develop the products required and desired by industry. Their ongoing development plans include working with key vendors involved in the latest RAPID MICROBIOLOGY technology, where EMTEK is looking for ways to integrate these Rapid technologies with EMTEK’s air sampling platforms.
As EMTEK always looks to expand its product line to meet customer’s needs, with input from those in the industry, EMTEK continues to developing and redevelop products to meet the needs of the industry.
