Who we are
When Chicago Laboratory Supply and Scale Company was founded in 1886, few could have predicted that more than 125 years and one name change later, it would still be supplying the world’s scientists with the highest-quality instruments available.
But that is exactly the case.
Today, Stoelting is comprised of five separate Divisions. Although Stoelting is a diversified company, the major product lines are all related to physiological, psychological, and psychophysiological measurement.
This inter-relationship results in exceptional synergism and cross-fertilization of ideas. Breakthroughs in one of our Divisions routinely find application in another Division.
This kind of dynamic environment has been present at Stoelting from the beginning.
As a pioneer in the Physiological and Psychological apparatus fields, Christian Hans Stoelting built his company into one of the most successful and revered companies in the fledgling scientific world.
Stoelting's Gold Medal for Psychometric Apparatus from the 1904 St. Louis Exposition.
Silver Medal for Anthropometric Apparatus (St. Louis, 1904).
In fact, from 1903 to 1943, Stoelting was nearly unchallenged as the principal provider of the material culture of American psychology. And at the St. Louis Universal Exposition of 1904, C.H. Stoelting Co. was awarded Medals for Anthropometric Apparatus and Psychometric Apparatus, awards that hang on our walls to this day.
From those humble beginnings on Chicago’s west side, to our present-day headquarters in Wood Dale, Illinois, Stoelting has maintained a tradition of manufacturing and supplying superior instruments in worldwide service to science.
Our flagship Physiology Research Instruments Division boasts several proprietary instrument designs; our line of Stereotaxic Instruments is world-renowned, and the recent launch of Stoelting-Label Dovetail Slide Micromanipulators is taking the scientific community by storm.
At Stoelting, we are proud of our Tradition of Innovation, and we shall always have a strong commitment to support scientific research. We seek to offer only high quality, reliable instruments, and support them with prompt, educated customer service from our staff of science professionals.
We thank you for your interest in Stoelting, and look forward to serving you today, and in the years to come.
At Stoelting we value using only the highest quality of material to build the highest quality of instruments.
Integrity is key when keeping this level of honesty to our customers and we pride ourselves on employing researchers to help researchers needs.
