We are unique in being able to offer laboratory and science equipment for schools worldwide, while also retaining a strong focus on laboratory supplies for commercial and industrial markets.

We are proud to supply schools and distributors overseas with market-leading science equipment and our International division have established an enviable reputation for service and after sales support. This has enabled us to deliver to schools in over 150 countries worldwide.

No matter how large or small, how bulky or fragile the consignment, or how and where you would like it shipped, we can help. Whether we send your delivery by post, courier, road, air or sea, you can rest assured that all aspects of the delivery will be professionally managed, and we will offer support and guidance at all stages of your shipment. Our goal is to take care of all aspects of your order and shipment, including offering:

  • Prices that are inclusive of export packing in suitable cartons
  • Quotations, inclusive of freight costs on request
  • Ability to source products that are not included in the catalogue, on request

Bringing ranges for both Primary and Secondary education together in one website and catalogue ensures that we can find a product to meet your needs, whatever the age group that you teach.

Our core values are rooted in our history as a private, family-owned business. Established in 1957, and remaining as an independently owned company, we continue to build on our heritage in order to meet our philosophy of Inspiring Tomorrow's Scientists Today. To achieve this, and to meet the needs of ever-changing science curricula, our product portfolio is continually evolving and expanding.

We also offer a number of ranges that are exclusively available from us, including the Lascells range. The Lascells brand is at the forefront of British design and engineering. Bringing excitement to experimental studies, the extensive Lascells range is designed by professionals who combine expertise in teaching, production engineering, electronics and product design.

Fostering links with key partners means that we know that we will have a product to meet your needs and suit your budget.
