Val de Reuil/France — 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, the company 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.

On the occasion of the anniversary, the company announced that its philosophy was to always focus on the safety of the chemist and that they were 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 had helped the company to continually grow over the past 50 years, and a promising future over the next 50 years, the statement said.
