"Labman One offers Avici a unique set of skills tuned to meet our business needs including product repair, maintenance and lab management," states Fred Chaloux, Avici's Vice President of Operations and CIO.

Labman One, LLC has partnered with Lightspeed Mfg. to perform all component replacement and repair work for Avici's product.
