Labena was established in 1992 by her founder and today’s CEO Mrs. Irena Lemut Čeh. From its very beginning Labena has been focused on market segments in the pharmaceutical and food industry as well as academia and medical segments. Representing world leading companies from these fields, Labena has managed to establish a close cooperation with the majority of important customers in these market segments and stay successful in its business for over 25 years now. After a successful establishment and development of a business representative office in Croatia in 1994, the office was later, in 2001, transformed to a Ltd. Labena company. In 2004 and 2005 two more representative offices followed. One in Bosnia and other in Macedonia, which were both transformed into Ltd companies by the end of 2007. In 2011 the 5th Labena Ltd. office was established in Belgrade, Serbia. In 2015 a service and research GMP/FDA certified laboratory was established inside Labena group.
In 2004 a decision was made to invest into a service department (before 2005 an external company was performing service support) to better serve our customer’s needs. In the same year, Labena Slovenia was awarded with the title of the most promising small enterprise of the year 2004 award, by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce. Since then our group has grown from 12 to 55 people. In 2008 we have opened an R&D department in association with Faculty of Chemistry. The aim was again to support our solutions in selling with innovative products developed by ourselves from our practice we have gained in the field. Today our service department has 9 service engineers with BSc or MSc. Our service department is making sure, that our customers receive good, quick and reliable after sales technical support.
