Capp History

CAPP is a privately owned manufacturing company that enjoys the reputation of a dependable supplier of liquid handling products all across the world due to its strong focus on providing innovative and user friendly global standard premium liquid handling equipments.

The history of CAPP dates back to year 1984 in the University of Southern Denmark in Odense when Jørgen Cappelen; the founder developed the first fully autoclavable pipette for the lab technicians at that University. Little did he know that this milestone in history will mark the beginning of Cappelen Laboratory Technics, registered as CAPP ApS.

The 1990s saw CAPP expanding its distributorship boundaries to Canada, UK and Holland. Also, it is in this era that CAPP started slowly to move over from manual construction of each individual component to CNC machinery and injection moulding. In 1997, CAPP introduced its CAPPAero product line – a cutting edge pipette with innovative design and ergonomics features.

A series of product additions in 2000s complemented and resulted in the proliferation of CAPP business in more than 80 countries. Today, apart from its headquater in Germany, CAPP supports its distributors with representative sales and service offices in USA, Brazil, China and India.
