Why Consolidating Laboratory Purchases with Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) Can Benefit Your Lab

Apr 26 2023

Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) first began trading in 1991 and has grown to become the UK’s largest independent supplier of laboratory equipment, chemicals, and consumables. Headquartered in Nottingham, the company operates a warehousing, technical storage, and logistics service across the UK and in several international territories. SLS work closely with world leading brands through a market-leading catalogue and an extended range of over 600,000 products.

Managing a laboratory can be a complex and challenging task, especially when it comes to purchasing supplies and equipment. From sourcing the right products to negotiating prices and managing shipments, the procurement process can be time-consuming and expensive. However, by consolidating your purchases with SLS, you can reap numerous benefits, including savings, a simplified ordering process, consistent quality, reduced shipping costs, and unrivalled customer service.

One of the most significant advantages of consolidating your purchases with SLS is the potential for cost savings. By purchasing in bulk, you can often negotiate better pricing and discounts, which delivers significant savings over time. Additionally, working with SLS allows you to streamline your procurement process, reducing the time and effort required to manage orders.

Shipping costs can quickly add up when you are dealing with multiple suppliers, especially if you are receiving small shipments. By consolidating your orders with a single supplier, you can often receive all your orders in a single shipment, which can be more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than multiple smaller shipments.

When dealing with multiple suppliers, there is always a risk of service and product quality variation, which can have an adverse impact on the accuracy and reliability of lab results or overall productivity. By ordering from a flexible, reliable, and fast supplier, you can be certain that the products and services you receive meet your specifications.

With three times the level of personal customer care compared to other suppliers, SLS guarantees you a consistently tailored service. This can include everything from advice on product selection to troubleshooting issues with shipments or deliveries. Having a reliable supplier who understands your lab's needs, providing excellent customer service is essential for maintaining productivity and accuracy.

Contact SLS today to find out how you can achieve savings on world leading brands through a simplified ordering process supported with superior customer service.
