Our success is driven by our passion for customer satisfaction.

I am pleased to support Appleton Woods partnership with ZEISS. I recently purchased from Appleton Woods a ZEISS Axiolab 5 compound microscope with a range of bright field and phase contrast objectives and a camera attachment. The service has been excellent. This included a prompt home demonstration by a very knowledgeable representative who also provided some very practical advice with regards to ZEISS objectives.

Our account manager Harriet has always been extremely helpful and proactive, helping supply critical items where others have failed. The service is extremely friendly and I always feel the matter is being dealt with behind the scenes, so no need to chase. Always available and responsive to any enquiries we have. Reliable delivery dates in an extremely difficult time for logistics, due to COVID-19, Brexit, and many other factors. Would always be happy to recommend Appleton Woods to other companies in the industry for lab consumables and equipment.
Procurement Officer,
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have found Appleton Woods to be extremely responsive and reactive to the needs of the University, which is greatly appreciated. Appleton Woods were especially supportive in providing essential supplies for the University PPE Store at a time when it was needed the most.

I have been ordering from Appleton Woods for a number of years now after our lab started using their molecular reagents. Pricing of most items is very competitive, and delivery has usually been exceptionally quick, even for quite large orders. The local sales reps are also very helpful and responsive, and frequently pay us visits to check on our needs. I will certainly be continuing to order from Appleton Woods.

I have been dealing with the company Appleton Woods for several years now and have been extremely satisfied with their level of service. The local representative regularly makes contact with various members of the department with information on new products and special offers that he considers would be of interest and I also receive email updates for circulation. Quotations are sent promptly and orders dealt with efficiently with personal follow ups to ensure we are satisfied with the products. I look forward to a continued association with the company.

I have been happily working with Appleton Woods for over 7 years in the capacity of laboratory manager encompassing the role of procurement of laboratory consumables and equipment. The product range has always met my needs; there are usually different brands/manufacturers available which either cater for specific needs or small equipment to fit with the available funds - pertinently they offer a much needed budget priced range of items. I have always found them competitive on pricing, which along with their attention to detail, good communication and prompt response time makes them a personal preferred supplier
