Erlab reaches a milestone this year, celebrating 50 years of inventing, engineering, and manufacturing chemical filtration products to protect laboratory personnel from breathing harmful chemicals. Safety was the motivation and founding spirit of Francois P. Hauville in 1968 when he invented and introduced the first ductless filtering fume hood to the industry. Now, 50 years later, Erlab has manufacturing and sales locations around the globe with sales reaching over $20 million in 2018. To celebrate, Erlab invited employees, customers, and business partners to the company’s headquarters in Val de Reuil, France for a hands-on experience of memories through the decades, a tour of the manufacturing facility, and gala dinner at the historic Chateau D’Ageronne in Normandy, France.

“It is my pleasure to join Erlab employees, clients, and business partners in celebrating the company's 50th anniversary. We have come a long way since the business was started in 1968 and are very excited about our future as the company continues to innovate, engineer and manufacture safety devices to protect laboratory personnel from breathing dangerous chemical fumes," said Stephane Hauville, CEO when discussing the celebration.

Erlab’s philosophy is to always focus on the chemist’s safety and the company are passionate about innovating chemical filtration products that are used in analytical, education, medical, and research labs around the globe. Erlab’s ability to continuously innovate and deliver new products to the industry has helped the company to continually grow over the past 50 years, and a promising future over the next 50 years.
