Made in USA
Over 60 years of experience since 1959
We have been making laboratory disposables longer than nearly
everyone in our industry.
Labcon North America was founded in Marin County, California in 1959. Our original name was Ways and Means, Inc. The name given to the company then reflected the newness of the plastics industry. We were founded to literally find the "Ways and Means" to make plastic products. We made several small toys, vials for salt tablets, contact lense cases, cassette tape cartridges, and cigarette filter holders.
Now over 60 years later we have grown to supply more than 1000 products to labs all over the world. We make more than a billion products every year.SEE PRODUCTS

People are Not
We are committed to a socially responsible way of manufacturing including a fair wage.
The products we make are molded, assembled, and packaged in our Petaluma production facility. We sterilize at our facility about 500 meters away that also houses our warehouse and distribution center. We are focused on limiting our suppliers to a radius of 200 kilometers surrouding Petaluma. This helps us keep our environmental footprint limited.SEE MORE
