Midland Scientific, Inc. is marking their 40th year in business with exciting promotions for customers, employees and their community. “40 Weeks of Savings” will include ongoing promotions that can be found on http://www.midlandsci.com balanced by a bi-weekly trivia game to win $40 in MSI bucks. The organization will kick off “The Power of 40” by not only donating $40 per employee to the Open Door Mission in Omaha, but will also involve them in community service by serving lunch at the Mission, food drives, and volunteer work at the Food Bank for the Heartland throughout the remaining 40 weeks of the year.

Midland Scientific was founded on April 1, 1975 by John Gondring in Omaha, NE. The company’s objective was to meet the needs of industrial and commercial laboratories in the upper Midwest, with a broad line of chemicals. In a recent interview, John remarked, “Midland Scientific has impacted me for the better. It is a big sense of accomplishment to build something from nothing and see its continued success today.” That same year, Midwest Laboratories also opened for business and developed a strong business relationship with Midland Scientific that still holds true today. Their President, Ken Pohlman reflected on how both organizations’ core values of employee and customer satisfaction has fueled sustainable growth over the last 40 years, “Treat people well and service the client. Improve each time you interact with your customers.”

In 2007, the company was acquired by the current owner, Vivian Pappel, allowing the organization to become a WBENC certified woman’s business enterprise. “We are proud to celebrate our 40th year in business! We are so grateful to our many customers who have been faithful to us for years and years. Midland Scientific has an outstanding team of employees, committed to providing outstanding customer service. We are also devoted to improving the communities in which we live,” said Vivian Pappel. “The company continues to pride itself on Midwestern roots and a hard work ethic that keep customers coming back.”

Midland Scientific, Inc. has grown to become a nationwide full-line distributor of over 200,000 products and chemicals for the laboratory. The company has expanded with additional locations in Davenport IA, Rapid City SD, and Denver CO.
