Kendro Laboratory Products
The Water Street team partnered with DuPont to purchase its SORVALL division in 1996. Two years after our investment, our team merged SORVALL with the laboratory instruments division of Heraeus to form Kendro Laboratory Products. It was a transformational combination that created a global leader in products and services to the laboratory life sciences and drug discovery markets. SPX Corporation, a multi-industry manufacturing leader, bought the company from us in 2001 to expand its life sciences business. Kendro’s products continue to support research scientists around the world with preparing samples for experimentation.
