Our name Envigo

Envigo is a coined phrase that combines the English words enhance, enrich and vigorous, as well as the Latin root for vigorous “vita” which means life.

The “En” in Envigo stands for “enhance” and “enrich”. This reflects the notion that, as a company, we exist to help our customers conduct research and develop products that have the potential to achieve these objectives for the lives of people and animals.

The “Vigo” part of our name stands for vigorous – meaning strong, robust and active. Research we conducted concluded that the five companies forming Envigo are stronger together in the eyes of our customers. In addition, the root of “vigorous” comes from the Latin word “vita” which means life.

In sum, Envigo means a strong, active company whose purpose is to enhance and enrich life.
