Burdinola technicians at work in a laboratory

Burdinola specialises in the planning, integration and installation of laboratories based on a value proposition that covers every phase of a project’s management and development. Our vision is global: not only do we integrate our own product - laboratory furniture and equipment such as fume cupboards, nano chambers and other extraction equipment- but we also handle all the associated services our customers may require.

At Burdinola our customers get the best possible service thorugh an optimal combination of our entrepreneurial spirit with our ability to manage projects. Our success lies in understanding the needs of researchers and in applying the knowledge and expertise we have gained in the design of laboratories to the strictest international standards.

Burdinola is today a project-oriented company that focuses primarily on large projects, where flexibility and working closely with the customer are key. We also have a line of business (SCPs- Short Cycle Projects) that focuses on small projects or refurbishments where swift action is of the essence. As a leading manufacturer we also offer a wide range of innovative products such as fume cupboards and chambers that allow technicians to work with nanoparticles in countries where our market presence is not well-established as yet.
