We knew there was a better way to provide local, affordable and eco-green products for our customer base
San Jose, CA (Vocus) April 21, 2009
E&K Scientific, the premier provider of laboratory supplies and instrumentation to academic, biotech and pharmaceutical research laboratories, today announced the release of its specialty Accuflow product line, supporting the local community and the environment. The Accuflow System includes a wide range of products used in scientific laboratories on a daily basis, providing scientists and lab workers with an economical, environmentally-friendly and locally-available alternative to other top solutions.
E&K Scientific, a local, family-run business, has been in the vanguard of companies that go beyond distribution of products, creating solutions to important problems. When it came to labware, E&K realized that many of the solutions available were manufactured in California, then shipped to warehouses out of state prior to being re-shipped back to labs in California when a customer placed an order. The need to re-import back into California not only increased the cost of the goods, it added to greenhouse gas emissions. E&K located a local manufacturer, Axygen Scientific, who could make the solutions to the company's exacting standards, use environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes, and deliver them to the company's local warehouses for local distribution.
The Accuflow line includes a refill system that enables the researcher to re-use empty boxes. In addition, E&K provides a free pick-up service for empty used boxes. The company takes the boxes to a local recycling plant where they are converted into raw material for new product.
The Accuflow System also generates revenues into the local economy. By producing product locally, distributing it locally and recycling locally, more than 90 cents of every dollar goes back to the community, as opposed to merely 60 cents for non-local businesses.
"We knew there was a better way to provide local, affordable and eco-green products for our customer base," explained Brian Ruf, CEO of E&K Scientific. "Our Accuflow line, manufactured to our specifications, provides benefits in three important areas: reduced transportation requirements, ecological manufacturing methods, and support for the local economy. It's exactly in line with our company philosophy of doing more for the local community."
