Labconco Corporation, or Laboratory Construction Company as it was first named, was founded in 1925 by Ralph Callaway and Phil Goldfisch. The company's first product was a Kjeldahl Nitrogen Determination Apparatus, which agricultural laboratories used to test the protein content of feeds and grains. From humble beginnings as a one-product shop in a small garage in downtown Kansas City, Labconco stretched its legs and today employs over 200 associates at facilities in two locations and manufactures 16 different product lines.
Our customer service is second to none. For inside assistance, contact Customer Service or a Product Specialist. Our team provides technical expertise with laboratory construction or renovation projects involving multiple fume hoods and more. If you need help with a Labconco product, our Product Service Representatives can assist you over the phone or arrange for service in your lab. For an on-site visit or technical advice, there's a Labconco Sales Representative in your area. Our International Department has representatives who cover the globe.
Labconco sells through a worldwide network of laboratory supply distributors. In 1996, Labconco received the prestigious President's "E" Award for excellence in exporting from the U.S. Department of Commerce. Many of our products carry CE Marking signifying electrical conformity for use in the European Community. GSA contracts are available to governmental agencies and other authorized entities.
