Tecniplast has more than 60 years of experience in the design, manufacture and distribution of specialized housing products and related equipment for the laboratory animal industry.
With headquarters in Europe and North America (USA & Canada), and seven subsidiaries around the world, Tecniplast has everything that is required to serve the industry globally: R&D, product design, manufacturing, assembly, quality control, service and support, shipping and logistics, sales and marketing, administrative and client services.
Tecniplast North America Headquarters was founded in 1999 and is located in West Chester, just outside of Philadelphia. A 76,000 sq. ft. building, sitting on a 12-acre lot, hosts Tecniplast’s sales and administrative offices, manufacturing facility, service and support, plus a centralized warehouse with a shipping department. The production site allows the company to manufacture locally and thereby achieve faster lead times while maintaining the same world-class production standards that our clients have grown to expect. In addition, warehouse capabilities enable better inventory of finished products and spare parts availability.

Through keen insight and product knowledge, the team offers throughput calculations and utility consumption estimates for better accuracy and planning.
