history chart

Over the past 120+ years WHEATON, headquartered in Millville, NJ (USA) has developed strong positive brand recognition in both the U.S. and internationally, cultivated through decades of providing consistently high levels of quality products and services to our customer base.

Founded in 1980, LSL started as a manufacturer and distributor of laboratory products that has grown to become one of the U.K.’s premier manufacturers of tubular glass products for the Biotechnology and Cosmetic markets.

Throughout LSL’s history, the company provided scientists and clinicians with high quality glass and plastic consumable products including, dropper pipettes, test tubes, chromatography vials, crimp and screw neck vials. For over 30 years our experience and passion has been serving the general laboratory, life science, clinical and diagnostic packaging industries within the UK and Europe as well as being an inventory stocking supplier to the National Health Service (NHS).

When LSL was acquired by WHEATON Industries in February 2011 we combined the UK’s premier manufacturer of tubular glass vials with a first-tier best in class global supplier of laboratory products.

Now known as WHEATON UK Limited, we are moving into an exciting new phase.

Unparalleled experience and flexibility continues to drive our dedication to customer satisfaction and performance improvement making us incredibly easy to deal with for both standard and bespoke glass products.

Our life’s work has been founded in providing outstanding customer service in all areas of the markets we now reach.
