Van London Company (“VLC”) was founded in 1961 by Gregory (“Greg”) S. Van London as a distributor focused mainly on the end-users of liquid analytical equipment. Greg possessed a special dedication to providing products and services which met, and in many cases, exceeded customers’ expectations. VLC housed a full machine shop, QC Department and Assembly Department that afforded VLC the ability to customize and improve upon the products purchased from other manufacturers.
Not being satisfied with the delays and in-flexibility of then-available manufacturing companies, Greg opened pHoenix Electrode Company in 1975 as a complete manufacturing facility for electrodes. It boasted a full machine shop, a glass blowing department and the entire production line that allowed for complete manufacturing of special, custom and direct replacement electrodes.
The two sister-companies complimented each other perfectly. Each maintained the constant commitment to provide a quality product in a time-efficient manner that exactly met the individual needs of the customer. VLC remained focused on the end-users with a specialty in harsh industrial environments and provided the knowledge and experience to pHoenix Electrode Company which launched into the international laboratory and OEM markets.
With the world becoming more of a “Global Economy” it was only logical when in 2007, VLC announced the merger of the two sister companies creating Van London – pHoenix Company (“VL-PC”). Today, VL-PC is under the direct leadership of Kurt L. Van London, son of Gregory Van London.
