Huffman Laboratories Inc. Welcome



Dear Clients and Friends,

We are pleased to announce that Hazen Research, Inc., our long-time supplier, client, and friend has acquired Huffman Labs.

This move will provide even higher quality services to our clients by combining the high-caliber technical power of the two organizations.  Our laboratory will continue to operate in its current location as Huffman Hazen Laboratories, a Division of Hazen Research, Inc.  The Huffman Labs website, the phone number (303-278-4455), and all company phone extensions and emails will remain the same.

Ron Keil, Huffman’s Laboratory Director and the senior scientist responsible for much of our success for the past 22 years, will continue working in this capacity with the new company.  All of our current staff, with the exception of the Huffmans, will continue their work with the combined company. Hazen is an employee owned company so all of our staff will become owners of the company. The Huffmans will continue as consultants.

Hazen Research is a world renowned R & D company that has been providing flowsheet and engineering design data for the mineral, chemical, energy, and environmental industries since 1961.  Their website is, and the phone number is 303-279-4501.

In addition to supporting Hazen’s Engineering projects, their laboratory has a substantial external commercial component. The merging of Huffman Labs with Hazen’s laboratory enhances and expands Huffman’s existing elemental analysis capabilities to many areas, including fire assay, x-ray fluorescence, x-ray diffraction, radiochemistry, as well as extensive mineralogical characterization procedures.

We are grateful for the past support from all of our clients.  We are very proud of the caliber of clientele that has trusted Huffman Laboratories to provide the highest quality of analytical services.  It is each of you that have made our family’s business of 78 years a successful, fulfilling, gratifying scientific endeavor.  We take tremendous pride in our company, and we couldn’t be more comfortable in trusting its legacy to Hazen.  Rest assured that you will continue to receive the highest caliber of chemical analysis, technical support and consultation.

As soon as the transaction is completed, you will receive more details. This merger should result in few changes in the way you do business with the laboratory and open doors to the additional capabilities of Hazen Research.


With most sincere regards,

Bill Huffman, President
