Our Story

Company Overview

In 1951, after a successful career with DuPont, Joseph J. Krackeler started a scientific distribution company in Albany, New York, primarily supplying laboratory chemicals and glassware. In the early 1970’s and for the next 36 years Robert Krackeler and William Krackeler guided the company and oversaw its growth from a regional concern and a small number of products to one with hundreds of top-line brands and a national customer base. Robert concentrated on sales and marketing and William’s focus was financial and operational.

Almost 70 years and two subsequent generations after inception, Krackeler Scientific is a leading, full-line distributor of general laboratory supplies, large and small equipment, chemicals, bioreagents, chromatography consumables, tissue culture products, sophisticated biological kits, media and supplements, lab safety products, personal protective gear, and just about anything else you’d want to find in a scientific space. Our comprehensive product line represents all the leading scientific manufacturers and can be ordered through our website. We now serve academic, governmental, and private sector customers in the biotechnology, nanotechnology, life science, pharmaceutical, biomedical, environmental, clinical, food and beverage, cannabis, and industrial sectors. Our home remains in Albany, but our reach is global.

Thank you for your business in the past and we look forward to working with you in the future.
