A Special Announcement from Globe Scientific
4/28/2022 I Mahwah, NJ
To Our Valued Customers, Vendors, Employees and Friends,<br/><br/>As most of you know, our family has been in the laboratory supply business for nearly 39 years. Our company, Globe Scientific, was founded in 1983 by my parents Milton and Beverly Diamond and has grown to become one of the largest privately held laboratory products companies in our industry. From our humble beginnings in the basement of our home to our current 150,000 square foot facility in Mahwah, New Jersey, Globe provides thousands of different products to the laboratory industry through a wide channel of distribution partners.
We can proudly say that our team and our corporate culture is one of the best in the industry… and there’s so much more for us to accomplish! To support our strategic vision for the future and help us reach for the stars, we are excited to announce that our family has partnered with L Squared Capital Partners to support our growth and expand our reach.
As part of the transaction, Globe will join GSI Group Holdings, a platform company consisting of prestigious microscopy companies with locations in California, Holland, Spain, and China. Together… we will go far!
Globe Scientific will continue to operate business-as-usual under the expert management of our C-suite team with Randy Scott as President, David Ackley as COO and Dennis Hoeft as CSMO. Together with our existing superstar teams of customer service, sales, marketing, purchasing, product development, accounting, and warehouse professionals, Globe will continue to provide our customers with the five-star service they have come to expect. And while our family is stepping down from all active roles, my sister Lisa and I will be joining the board of the parent company, GSI Group.
We take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to our customers, vendor partners, and our incredible team of employees whose loyalty, dedication, hard work and expertise has brought us to this milestone moment in our company’s history.
With much excitement and great anticipation, we look forward to watching our company and our Globe family flourish as part of the GSI Group platform … here’s to a happy, healthy, and bright future for all!
With best personal regards,

Dear Customers and Friends,
Across the nation and around the world, these are unprecedented and uncertain times. While the situation surrounding COVID-19 is fluid and evolving, what remains constant is our steadfast commitment to the health and safety of our team, our customers, our community and beyond.
Globe Scientific stands strong and ready to do our part. As a worldwide provider of laboratory supplies, our New Jersey distribution center is open for business and committed to supplying our distribution partners with products that are critical to the healthcare industry, now more than ever.
We have been taking the necessary steps to maintain adequate inventory levels, and to ensure that our products are packaged and handled with the utmost of safety and care:
Throughout our organization, we have instituted the CDC’s recommended best practices and protocols, including mandatory “Social Distancing”.
Throughout our physical facility, we have increased the frequency of our cleaning and sanitizing routines; this includes but is not limited to more frequent handwashing, additional sanitizing stations, and more frequent disinfecting of equipment and shared surfaces.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has been distributed to all personnel; in addition to the standard use of disposable gloves, this additional PPE is required to be worn by all warehouse distribution and material handling staff.
We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees. In addition to the safety measures above, we have taken additional steps to protect our staff:
All work related travel has been suspended.
Most of our office personnel have been equipped with resources to work remotely from their homes.
Team members who remain on-site are working at stations that are well spaced apart to comply with “social distancing” standards; we have staggered all workday breaks to further minimize contact. As mentioned above, each staff member is equipped with personal protection gear which also includes personal communication devices to limit the need for in person contact.
As the situation continues to evolve, we will provide additional updates. In the meantime, from my family to yours, thank you for putting your trust in Globe Scientific. Please stay safe and healthy, and may we emerge from this challenge with greater strength and resilience as a united global community.
