Scientific Laboratory Supplies Limited acquires Wolf Laboratories Limited
21 May 2019
SLS has announced its acquisition of Wolflabs, enabling the newly enlarged group to provide better choice and an even wider range of products to the scientific community.
Nottingham-based SLS is a full-service distributor of laboratory products, supported by an extensive technically qualified sales team. Wolflabs, based near York, is a leading, predominantly web-based provider of laboratory equipment priding itself on the provision of immediate access to market-priced product information and great value for money. The combined group plans to offer complementary business models allowing customers and suppliers to take advantage of even more products and routes to market.
Peter Chapman, Managing Director of SLS, said: “SLS has grown significantly over its 28-year history through a solid commitment to people and a tailored, flexible approach to serving our customers. We have done this through maintaining an independent approach and retaining a personal touch that marks us out from our global competitors.
“To be able to welcome Wolf Laboratories into the SLS Group of Companies indicates our continued commitment to serve the laboratory marketplace and we are particularly excited to see how the unique business models of both SLS and Wolf can collectively provide benefits to both our customer and supply partners.”
Wolf Laboratories Managing Director, Sean Woodward, Managing Director added: “Both Wolflabs and SLS have excellent records in the provision of market-leading products to scientists in the UK and beyond. Within the SLS Group Wolflabs will be able to offer customers both a wider choice of brands and a greatly extended choice of product categories to choose from.”
Both companies will maintain a ‘business as usual’ approach and retain all current employees. Their respective business models will remain separate as both organisations work towards their ambitious plans for future growth.
