Here is some background information about EK Industries for your enjoyment -

Company History
Founded in 1976, E K Industries, Inc began supplying Chicago area Laboratories from their original Addison, Illinois facility. The original EKI product line included chemicals and reagents for use in the clinical/medical laboratory as well as the industrial testing laboratory. Also featured was a large selection of laboratory apparatus and equipment.

Our goal was to provide the highest quality products and personalized service to our customers. This commitment to quality has been the primary objective in our business relationships, and is still reflected in every aspect of our operations.

Our reputation for quality and service quickly made E K Industries one of the fastest-growing independent, regional distributors of laboratory chemicals and apparatus. We began to focus on our manufacturing operations, and expanded our line of chemical products to include a complete selection of chemicals, testing solutions and reagents used in the clinical laboratory setting. We are very proud to be currently supplying many of our original customers, some thirty years later.
As business operations continued to expand, EKI relocated in 1988 to its current location in the historic manufacturing district of Joliet, Illinois. The current facility, having undergone several expansions and upgrades, is geared for continued business development and growth.
Products manufactured by E K Industries are used throughout North America and the world. Our reputation for product quality and consistency coupled with superior service has contributed to our continued growth.
