ESC Lab Sciences
A short story about Peter and his lab
I’ve known Peter Schulert—ESC’s CEO—for about 22 years now. Back then (around 1994), my company Terraine would ship soil and groundwater samples to Peter’s laboratory in Mt Juliet TN. Sometime in 1995/96 I had the opportunity to go visit my uncle who lives in Tennessee, so I flew into Nashville with my mom, took a detour for a few hours, and paid Peter a visit at his lab.
At the time, his lab consisted of one single building. Flash forward to today, and ESC Lab Sciences has grown into a sprawling campus with a dozen buildings, each housing dozens and dozens of very expensive ($100K+) laboratory equipment, support systems, and inventory. ESC also happens to now hold the title of being the largest single facility environmental laboratory in the United States.
To say that what Peter has accomplished is impressive doesn’t even do it justice. “Amazing” might be a better word. While Peter doesn’t like to take credit for it, through his leadership and long-term mentality, he has been able to steer his company into becoming a major player in the environmental industry.
Their growth was not a coincidence. Continuous process improvement through innovation, technology adoption, and questioning the status quo: those are some of the key reasons that ESC has grown to be the force they are now.
In closing, I would like to showcase their lab to you by way of a few short videos, which I recorded using my little iPhone 6S when I visited his lab around August of this year.
