Scharlab S.L.
About us
Headquartered in Barcelona (Spain), Scharlab has experienced an outstanding growth in the last few decades. This has led us to have direct presence in 11 countries and enabled us to develop a worldwide presence through a distribution network covering over 100 countries.

The company was founded in 1949 in Barcelona under the name of FEROSA as an organic compond synthesising company. In 1954, this company was bought by Paul Scharlau, a second generation German in Spain. He then reached an agreement with the German Company Dr. Theodor Schuchardt to distribute their laboratory chemicals and to manufacture under licence in Spain.

In 1970, Schuchardt was sold to Merck-Darmstadt and FEROSA had no alternative but to start selling chemicals under a different name. Thus the Scharlau brand was born in 1971. Thousands of purification processes were consequently perfected to offer reagents of exceptional purity.

In 1980, Paul Scharlau passed away and his son, Werner, took over the business. The company then focused on providing high purity solvents in general and HPLC solvents in particular.

Between 1990 and 1997, the company added new product families to its portfolio, making a transition from a solvent manufacturer to a fully-fledged reagent company. Since then, the company has added new business lines such as culture media for microbiology, laboratory glassware and chromatography accessories. Today, the company offers a complete portfolio of laboratory supplies and operates under the Scharlab company name and Scharlau product brand.

Currently, Scharlab employs over 300 people and it is a company dedicated to design, manufacture and distribute products and services supporting scientist to achieve a better world. Scharlab does not belong to a private equity fund, which means it can focus on long-term goals that guarantee stability for both its customers and its team.
