SKC is known as a leading manufacturer of air sample pumps, sorbent tubes, gas sample bags, passive samplers, size-selective samplers, and filters for the industrial hygiene, occupational health, safety, and environmental markets. From its humble start as a one-room company with a handful of employees, SKC has grown to over 100 employees and an eight-building research, manufacturing, and warehouse facility in Eighty Four, Pennsylvania. Our extensive sales and service network includes branches and manufacturer representatives covering the U.S., U.K., Asia, and South Africa and global distributors in over 60 countries.
SKC is the world leader in sampling technologies. SKC was founded by chemist Lloyd V. Guild in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1962. The privately held corporation specialized in producing precision laboratory glassware. As other scientists joined Dr. Guild and his interest in protecting workers from occupational exposure grew, he expanded SKC’s capabilities to produce the first commercially available sorbent tube and one of the first low flow pumps.
SKC is proud of its products and the role they play in protecting workers and the environment.
