NOVATO, Calif.--(CP Lab Safety, a leading maker of environmentally friendly laboratory safety products, announced today that it has begun manufacturing its line of more than 80 products in the United States, after producing its goods in China for more than seven years.)--
“We are proud to have our Safety ECOLOGICAL Funnel™ - and all of our other product lines - imprinted with “Made in America”
“We are proud to have our Safety ECOLOGICAL Funnel™ - and all of our other product lines - imprinted with “Made in America” once again! We are particularly pleased that we are able to bring our manufacturing closer to home in the Bay Area,” CP Lab Safety CEO Kelly Farhangi said. “The move to manufacture in the U.S. not only saves money and increases our efficiency, but it ensures that our customers continue to receive the highest quality laboratory safety products available.”
CP Lab Safety has returned its manufacturing to the U.S. because of a more favorable business and manufacturing climate here today than seven years ago, when it moved its manufacturing offshore. The company’s product molds were shipped from China to the U.S. last month, and manufacturing of its new inventory began last week at Wright Engineered Plastics, Inc. in Santa Rosa.
“Our company has been manufacturing high-quality goods for a wide variety of industries for more than 50 years, and we are pleased to have CP Lab Safety as a new customer,” said Barbara Roberts, President and CEO of Wright Engineered Plastics, a premier provider of injection molding and tooling services. “At a time when the United States is losing manufacturing jobs at a breakneck pace, it’s heartening to see companies such as CP Lab Safety return operations to the United States. Manufacturing at home can not only save businesses money, but it can strengthen local economies.”
CP Lab Safety, formerly California Pacific Lab Safety, has supplied environmentally friendly laboratory safety products to the scientific and industrial world for more than 13 years. Its lead product, ECO Funnel™, is used on common laboratory waste containers to prevent hazardous and toxic chemicals from polluting laboratories and threatening the health of laboratory workers. ECO Funnel™ complies with most federal and local environmental, fire and safety regulations.
