Customer-First From The Start
The American Dream. How many people can say they have achieved this in their lifetime? The founder of Poly Scientific John J. Caggiano can!
It started in 1969; John made the chemicals at night and sold them during the day. His mantra was “high-quality products and superior service”. A few years into the business, Joseph Caggiano became partners with John, and they were known in the industry as “The Caggiano Brothers from New York”. What a team they made! John continued to make the chemicals and now Joe was selling them.
This company was built on hard work, dedication, and integrity. To this day John and Joseph still own the company. The values that Poly Scientific was built upon are stronger than ever. Although there are few original family members working at the company, Poly Scientific is its own family with 40 dedicated employees keeping the American Dream alive!
Going The Distance
- Products are unconditionally guaranteed
- Customer satisfaction is our main priority
- Product labels conform to OSHA rules & regulations
- Only BSC certified stains & USP or ACS grade chemicals are used to confidently produce superior products
Poly Scientific is very conscious of the environment, especially since we are located on an island, Long Island.
We take extra measures to ensure none of the wastewater goes into the ground. All of our laboratory sinks are connected to a 1,000 gallon waste holding tank. The holding tank is pumped out between 1-2 times per week and it is carted away by a licensed waste disposal company.
In addition, our laboratory vents are registered with New York State. The air is monitored for what is being emitted into the environment. A permit is required as well as a monetary fee.
The laboratories as well as our flammable storage room have been custom-built with dikes. These dikes contain a spill in the specific area. This prevents hazardous liquids from spreading or leaking into the ground water if there is a large spill.
We also recycle cardboard, glass and cans. These items are discarded separately so they are not contaminated by the daily garbage.
