July 7, 2006 — /PRWEB/ — Cornelius, OR — Research studies show that the quantity of online purchases will increase by up to 55% over the next 2-3 years for laboratory products and equipment (Laboratory Equipment Magazine, Lab Trends 2006, pg. 40). Anticipating this trend, Sheldon Manufacturing, Inc. has recently launched an eCommerce store to allow SHEL LAB users to purchase replacement parts and accessories online. Sheldon Manufacturing is one of the first laboratory equipment manufacturers to offer this service and feels that this is a necessary step toward serving end users of the SHEL LAB line of incubators, ovens, baths, and anaerobic chambers.
“We are very excited to turn Phase One of our online store live,” said Julie Kay Schatzman, VP of Sales and Marketing for Sheldon Mfg. She adds, “Our goal is premier service, and whether that comes from eCommerce, phone support or face to face sales, is the same to us. What is important is that we are providing helpful information to scientists and researchers via as many avenues as possible.”
At http://www.shellab.com/store, end users are now able to search and browse through over 250 parts, as well as track UPS shipments without leaving the site. Users will notice the new keyword search features, as well as a full library of images.
While some distributors in the life science and laboratory equipment industry are eCommerce enabled, Sheldon Mfg. is one of the first laboratory equipment manufacturers to offer online shopping. “We started by adding product manuals to the site and noticed a clear service advantage for our customers,” remembers Dan Sheldon, President of Sheldon Mfg. “Now those same customers can find the correct part for their laboratory oven, Bactron Anaerobic Chamber, CO2 Incubator, or Water Bath and order it online at their own convenience.”
Sheldon Manufacturing plans to expand their online offering through the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2006 with the launch of several new products including a redesigned SHEL LAB water bath, dry high heat sterilization CO2 Incubator, and a Large Capacity SHEL LAB shaking incubator.
