Midland Scientific's 45th Anniversary

MSI was founded on April 1, 1975 in Omaha NE. The company’s objective was to meet the needs of industrial and commercial laboratories in the upper Midwest. Since that time, the company has remained committed to the industrial market, supplying all chemical and product needs for their laboratories. In 2007, the company was acquired by the current owner, Vivian Greni, allowing the organization to become a WBENC certified women’s business enterprise. “We are so excited to celebrate our 45th year of business! Midland Scientific has the greatest supplier base, team members and customers in the lab supply industry. We take enormous pride in personal service, and our customers know that our word is our bond. Our Midwestern roots have provided a solid work ethic and our values have produced long-lasting customer relationships.”

When John Gondring founded the company, he focused on the chemical needs of commercial laboratories. John remarked how proud he is to watch Midland Scientific grow over the past 45 years and wishes it continued success in the future. Midwest Laboratories also opened for business the same year in Omaha. The two companies formed a strong working relationship that still holds true today. Brent Pohlman, CEO of MWL , reflected on his father, Ken Pohlman and John Gondring who formed a partnership that would serve future generations. Both men always put “People First”. People is our first core value and we have continued to keep our focus on people at Midwest Laboratories: “We know, care and treat our people as members of our family.”

Midland Scientific President Vivian Greni stated, “It is very rewarding to see our company grow from a local Midwestern supplier to a nationwide distribution network. Having grown now to seven locations, it is rewarding to see how our team impacts their local customers and communities. We have donated time, resources and talent to help each community sustain and grow. We have built new facilities, creating safer and more efficient work environments for all of our current and future employees.”
