In 1906, a handful of investors with a vision hired 18 workers and formed what is today the Kewaunee Scientific Corporation. Their goal was ambitious: build a superior line of laboratory furniture. Until the early 1900s, America relied on Europe for the bulk of its laboratory equipment. After World War I the American scientific industry began to gain ground, and Kewaunee grew rapidly. We expanded our market with an enhanced dealer organization to take advantage of this growth.
By the end of the 1920s, we were building both steel and wood laboratory furniture and accessories. During World War II, we were a government contractor for the Air Corps and an important supplier for the Manhattan Project. After the war, America experienced a technological explosion resulting in increased demand for scientific laboratory equipment. Kewaunee responded by building our present facilities in Statesville. A lot has changed in the last 100+ years but not the original goal: to build a superior line of laboratory furniture, the best that can be built.
