In Memory of

Chris 2

Chris Piotrowski

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Chris Piotrowski.

Chris was one of AB Agri’s longest-serving employees, working for our company for 45 years. His career in the field of NIR was one of continual ground-breaking innovation.

Chris initially headed up AB Agri’s Central Laboratories division, which in due course was renamed Aunir and became part of AB Vista, leading the way globally in near infrared spectroscopy technology and research.

Chris leaves behind a huge legacy at AB Vista and in the wider industry worldwide. Loved and admired by everyone who worked with him, Chris was a true pioneer, an innovator and an educator. His impact on our industry was immense.

There are no adequate words to describe his loss. Our heartfelt condolences to his family.
