About Wellington

Wellington Laboratories Inc. (Wellington) was incorporated in February 1980, celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2010.

In the late 1970’s, PCBs were known environmental contaminants, whereas chlorinated dioxins (PCDDs) and furans (PCDFs) had only recently been considered as threats to the environment. In addition, there was very little information as to the toxicity of PCBs, PCDDs and PCDFs, particularly long-term effects.

As it became more well documented that certain PCB, PCDD and PCDF congeners were quite toxic, and significantly more toxic than other congeners, the need for standards of these compounds grew rapidly. However, very few reference standards of these compounds were commercially available.
