Labcold was founded in 1932, based in Borough High Street, London and long retained a link to its origins in its original name: Boro Laboratories or Boro Labs for short. Originally the primary business was to provide a laboratory analytical service, however it was not long before the company became involved in the supply of equipment.
In the following years the company closed the analytical laboratory to further develop its business and to focus on supplying specialist laboratory temperature control equipment for the medical, food, pharmaceutical and other life science related applications.
In 2007 Borolabs was renamed Labcold, which had previously been the brand name used for their own brand range of refrigerators and freezers, to coincide with the company's 75th Anniversary. December 2012 saw Labcold celebrate their 80th.
