About Us

A BRIEF HISTORY

Mr. Vojko Podgornik established the MIKRO+POLO company in 1990. In just a few years, we have become Slovenia’s biggest supplier of laboratory equipment, instruments, chemicals and diagnostics, with our innovative approach and the high quality of our products and services – and we still are to this day. We have a team of ninety employees in Maribor (SLO), ten employees in Sarajevo (BH) and Munich (Germany) who take care of our satisfied customers.

 

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS OF LABORATORY FURNITURE – SUCCESSFUL BREAKTHROUGH INTO FOREIGN MARKETS

Two years after the establishment of the company, Mr. Vasja Matjašič, a co-worker in engineering, put forward a proposal for the company to manufacture its own laboratory furniture. The beginnings were humble, as we were self-taught in this field. We sought knowledge wherever we could and gained experience with every project. Despite the initial lack of self-confidence, we eventually proved to ourselves and to our customers that we are a capable and reliable partner with a long-term vision.

For an easier breakthrough into foreign markets and better recognisability, we introduced our own brand of laboratory furniture in 2014 – LAB INTERIOR, and successfully introduced it the very same year at the international Achema trade fair. Even we were surprised by the positive feedback of our thrilled customers.

We established our daughter company, LAB INTERIOR GmbH, in Munich, Germany.

AFTER 20+ YEARS, WE CAN TAKE ON EVEN THE MOST DEMANDING PROJECTS

Today, we have vast expertise and technical knowledge. If we add to that the wealth of experience and almost unlimited number of new ideas, we are capable of finding solutions even for the impossible challenges. We are glad that we can please even the most demanding customers with our furniture. So far, we have equipped over 1.500 laboratories of various purposes, levels of demand and sizes. Our references include control laboratories in the industry, large research laboratories in institutes, chemical laboratories in the education system and microbiology laboratories in the healthcare system. Most of our laboratories are operational abroad, from Austria and Germany, all the way to Norway and Singapore.

Customers who have been working with our furniture for several years keep coming back to us. We are proud that they are satisfied users of our products and that they keep choosing our company.

 

OWN PRODUCTION

We have our own production of laboratory furniture in Maribor. On state-of-the-art CNC machines, your laboratory furniture is made to fit perfectly and flexibly and prepared for delivery.

 

EXPERT TEAM FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW

We strengthened our team in Lab Interior in order to handle new challenges. We employed new co workers – today, we are a big, professional and experienced team of workers, who create beautiful and more pleasant working environments for you with all our dedication.

We are proud that many foreign and domestic clients trust us, a leading manufacturer of laboratory furniture in Slovenia.
