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.
