Wildlife Supply Company®, founded in 1938 in Saginaw, Michigan by Dr. Herbert Trippensee, was a pioneer in the environmental sampling industry. Over the years, the company earned a reputation among universities and government agencies for selling quality, reliable environmental sampling equipment.
In 2000, the company was acquired by Science First® under the Wildco® brand name. Established in 1960 in Buffalo, New York, Science First® is a renowned manufacturer of science products for the education industry.
In 2009, after more than 50 years in Buffalo, Science First® and Wildco® relocated to a new warehouse facility in Yulee, Florida just outside of Jacksonville.
Wildco® proudly manufactures environmental sampling products in the Yulee facility, including several tools specified in a variety of EPA protocols, for which the company holds the patent:
