As the end of 2019 approaches, we look forward to another decade of connecting, conversations around mixing and developing Caframo products incorporating your voice that enhance scientific endeavor. We reflect on our achievements, and look forward to the future as we set our goals for the year ahead. We extend greetings to you our customers as we begin this holiday season, hoping similarly encouraging thoughts are shared.
It has certainly been a decade of note for Caframo Lab Solutions. With more than doubling the Caframo Lab team, the relationships that have been developed and resulting mutual support is evident in the growth in the number of Caframo stirrers in the hands of busy lab techs today. Customer feedback and partnerships have resulted in product improvements and new product launches, including the 2017 release of the Crossover 1540, and last year’s A561 pitched blade turbine added to the impeller line. Expansion in our manufacturing capacity has enabled us to keep our commitment that product is always in stock.
At a corporate level, Caframo realized several milestones in the past ten years. In 2015 we celebrated Caframo’s 60th anniversary, followed a year later by being certified a Great Workplace for the first time. Caframo was honoured with Business of the Year (25+ Employees) award in 2018 by the Owen Sound & District Chamber of Commerce. Continuing this momentum in 2019, Caframo welcomed its first COO and we are proud to end the year again qualifying as a Great Workplace.
As proud as we are of these accomplishments, we continue to work hard to meet the business and equipment needs of today and the future. Membership in organizations such as the Laboratory Products Association keep us informed and prepared for changes in the lab equipment business. Ready to adapt, we will stay resolutely dedicated to building quality products, engaging with business partners that make it easy for you to find and access the Caframo line, and providing support to you to help solve your mixing problems to keep you productive and successful in your job. Keep watch to see where Caframo will be in year 2020 and beyond!
