Scott Laboratories Inc. (USA) and Scott Laboratories Ltd. (Canada) are privately held companies specializing in value added products for the North American wine, craft brewing and distilled spirits industries. Our predecessor firm, the Berkeley Yeast Laboratory, was literally founded in the weeks prior to the end of Prohibition in 1933. The mission of the new company was to help customers produce better products for their customers. Value added was a core principal then. It remains a core value almost eight decades later.
Our first products were lab services and yeast. In the years that followed, the needs of our industry customers led us first to cellar supplies, then to packaging, and finally into processing and bottling equipment. It has been a 77-year evolution driven by the concept of adding value. Our current product portfolios include some of the most famous names in the wine, craft brewing and spirits industries. In some cases we have our own proprietary products (such as Sparkolloid, Scottzymes and Scott’Tan) while in other cases, we work with partner firms. You can view all of our offerings on our website at www.scottlab.com.
In 2012, our companies have 75 employees. Our headquarters are in Petaluma, California and Pickering, Ontario. In addition, Scott USA has two additional locations in Petaluma and a satellite facility in Healdsburg (Sonoma County).
