In 1993, Westlab formed as a passionate organisation dedicated to serving the laboratory industry with the highest quality products. Growing into a key player in international laboratory supplies and expanding to include the broad field of science and healthcare, Westlab’s passions, values and core mantra describe our attitude, and the way we enable discovery.
As a team, we are positive, focussed, driven and energetic, meaning we can provide a solution to any problem, and more. As Westlab has evolved into a global leader in the scientific space, we needed to define ourselves as a future for the world of discovery.
Who is DuraLab?
DuraPlan’s focus lay in quality manufacturing of compact laminate products. With established facilities in New Zealand, DuraPlan’s capability to manufacture this product continues to provide the highest quality and most accessible product. Evolving into three distinct business divisions, DuraPlan eventually became the trio of DuraPlan restroom systems, Surface Form wall protection systems, and working with Westlab Projects in Australia at the start of 2020, collaborated with the team to operate under DuraLab laboratory furniture.
Westlab Projects’ expertise in high-end laboratory furnishing, with the Modulab Connect system, allowed DuraLab to launch off the global presence and collaborate using DuraPlan’s manufacturing capabilities for high-compact laminate materials. This manufacturing capacity brings the global reach and huge flexibility of local capacity to Westlab’s capabilities.
2021, bringing a refreshing rebrand to Westlab – envisioning a world of breakthrough discoveries – also sees the acquisition and merging of DuraLab and Westlab Spaces, formerly Westlab Projects. This strategic move by Westlab strengthens Westlab’s global presence whilst maintaining our commitment to local manufacturing in each of the countries we operate in.
