We are experts in our field. We are also enthusiasts; highly skilled and experienced craftsmen who manufacture and supply a full range of bespoke and standard scientific and non-scientific borosilicate glassware.
We make beautiful things. Most of the things that we make are also practical. We manufacture specialised scientific glassware for an extremely varied group of enterprises; chemical, petrochemical, nutritional analysis, metallurgy, pharmaceutical, agribusiness, lighting, designers, artists, film studios, museums, research and development labs, restaurants, television shows, displays, government research labs, emissions companies, water companies, the education sector, individuals, pilot plant manufacture, specialist manufacturers, the list is almost endless. Borosilicate glass is used in just so many industries in one form or another and as we specialise in specials it follows that we deal with all.
We also supply standard laboratory glassware (beakers, flasks, microscope slides etc) to whomever has a need. We are not just a distributor selling widgets. We are independent professional glassblowers, free of limiting commercial tie-ups and we know what we are looking at when we examine a scientific glass vessel. We have therefore carefully chosen the products that we hold in stock.
