About us

Wolflabs was founded on 19th January 1995 by Sean Woodward and Dave Child. Originally based in Oxford, we re-located to Pocklington, just outside York, with 5 members of staff. We start 2020 with a workforce of 25 and continue to strive to expand our service to customers. Our main achievement to date has been becoming the top ranked supplier on the UK public sector framework agreement for laboratory equipment in 2016.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers, suppliers and staff, a number of which we have worked with since 1995. Below are a handful of the comments we have received explaining why people love working with Wolflabs -

Emma, our Customer Service Administration Manager for the South said "Wolflabs is the most amazing company to work for - everyone is valued and listened to and we are all well looked after (bacon butties!) The fact we are lucky enough to enjoy coming to work makes a huge difference to our lives and we are like one big family sharing the huge highs and looking after each other through the lows."

Steve Mines, SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions Sales Director said "We have worked with Wolflabs since 2005, and the new business model of web based sales works really well as it allows end users and purchasers to compare all of our units, resulting in a quick and efficient quoting process."

Sean, our Managing Director said "Before I began work at Wolflabs my interest in laboratory equipment was limited to looking at pictures in the supplier catalogues I collected as part of my job as a laboratory technician. When I joined Wolflabs in 1995 I was able to realise my dream of being able to think about laboratory equipment for an average of around 60 hours a week. 25 years later this still hasn't lost its appeal!"

David, our Marketing Director said "We have a very close knit team at Wolflabs. Everyone pulls together, works extremely hard and at the same time has a laugh along the way. This great environment is the reason we have almost 200 years of service between our 25 members of staff."

Jacqui, our Order Processing Coordinator said "Having spent 15 years here at Wolf, I can honestly say that my colleagues have become like additional family members (although I would not like to actually live with them!). We celebrate each others highs & support one another through sad times too - something that is so valuable & unseen in many other workplaces."
