Our History

Baron Consulting was founded over 50 years ago by Dr. Harry Agahigian, Ph.D., with a single instrument, an Infrared Spectrometer. Harry’s experience in the chemical industry ranged from plastics to polymers to halogen compounds. He specialized in Molecular Spectroscopy, Analytical Methodology and Instrumentation.

Dr. Agahigian’s experience also extended to the academia, teaching at prestigious universities such as Quinnipiac and Fairfield University. Harry’s ability to easily explain complex principles made him a favorite with his students and clients. He also authored several scientific papers.

Dr. Agahigian passed away peacefully in August 2020. Among the many things he will be remembered for is creating Baron Consulting, his contributions to his industry, academia and love of his craft. Baron Analytical Laboratories current owner, Kevin Ovian, whom Dr. Agahigian mentored over the last two years, is committed to keeping his legacy alive by operating the business in the spirit in which it was created.
