From our roots in the "Incubator"...

Our history of being experts within the dairy industry has allowed us to work closely with companies and build relationships that have held strong over the past 30 years.   

Headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, we find ourselves deeply interwoven in the heart of America's Dairyland.  Our roots took shape in the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce Incubator close to Lambeau Field.  Over the next 10 years, we grew and relocated to the east side of Green Bay in 2000. The new site started with 8,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.  In the fall of 2011, we again expanded, adding 15,000 square feet, tripling the size of the laboratory; Adding dedicated space for a training center, a lab for special projects, and office space for administrative needs. As of May 2021, Cherney became a part of Matrix Sciences International Inc. to better serve our valued clients and to expand our lab testing capabilities.
