Innovation & Consulting

We have established an integrated management system for quality, environment, occupational health and safety and data protection and are certified in accordance with pdfISO 9001:2015  by DQS, a world leading certification body.

Our company was founded during the height of the reestablishment of Eastern Germany into Germany and has been active throughout Germany and Eastern Europe since 1992 under the former company “LUCON”.

In 2003, our company bought the “Environmental Innovation Center” (Umweltinnovationszentrum) and incorporated it into our company by 2006.

In 2006, the Eurofins Group acquired the majority share of the laboratory department of LUCON and the consulting department was transferred into the Innovation & Consulting Ltd. (a.k.a INNO-CON).


While the majority of our jobs are realized in Bulgaria and Germany, we have also had great experiences working in many countries throughout Europe & the Balkans and in several countries in the Americas.

We have been fortunate to have met many capable local partners with which we can work together and acquire local support for the realization of international projects.
