The Westlab Story

Westlab began as New Horizons Scientific in 2007 in Richmond BC as an educational laboratory supplies provider to schools in BC. In 2009 the operation moved to Cloverdale BC in order to get bigger facilities to accommodate the growth from expanding sales across Western Canada. Nationwide sales began in 2011 and forced another move to a bigger location in Cloverdale. In 2013 New Horizons Scientific became a major shareholder in ISG (International Science Group) allowing access to the most up to date products in the industry. New Horizons Scientific changed names to Westlab in January 2014 in order to optimize marketing exposure with our world-wide ISG partners. Due to further expansion, in May of 2015 Westlab moved offices to Langley BC and our warehouse to a 95,000 square foot facility in Delta BC. Still a Canadian corporation, Westlab now distributes to secondary and tertiary educational, research and industrial laboratories across Canada with over 2000 product lines offered from our local and in-stock inventory.
