Henry B. Wilkens first opened our doors for business
May 16, 1918. The ensuing years saw us move to a new address and experience
substantial growth. While a tremendous amount of change has occurred during
those first 88 years, the one thing that has not changed for us at WACO is our
vision and commitment to provide the best possible service to our customers.
Wilkens-Anderson Company is an independent laboratory
equipment, supplies and chemicals distributor. We approach our eighty-eighth
year with satisfaction knowing we have kept pace with changes and remain a
symbol of stability in a field that has seen chaotic turmoil of mergers,
acquisitions, restructurings and reorganizations.
We look forward to the future resolved to continue to
serve our customers as we have in the past with personal attention, flexibility
and accommodation that the "one size fits all" giants can not equal. We pledge
to provide quality service and quality products. You can expect understanding
response from a staff of knowledgeable people, with average experience in the
industry exceeding 11 years. You can depend on your order being handled with
modern and efficient systems, and an appreciative attitude of accommodation
that says, "sure we can do it. No problem," instead of "our system's not set up
to do that."
As always we can provide one source service for
anything your laboratory might need, cross referencing competitors' and
manufacturers' catalog numbers, finding nearly anything, shipping orders of any
size, anywhere in the world. Wilkens-Anderson is still "The Source" for your
