Yamato Scientific, founded in 1889, has been a highly successful manufacturer of laboratory products in Japan for over 128 years.  They pioneered the introduction of a microprocessor temperature controller with self-diagnostic features for thermal processing equipment. 

Yamato first entered the US market in 1982, selling private label products through a well-known US distributor.  In 1989, Yamato Scientific America Inc. (YSA) was established offering a broad range of laboratory equipment in the US under its own Yamato brand name, through general laboratory distribution.  These products included ovens, muffle furnaces, sterilizers, incubators, rotary evaporators, constant temperature baths, water circulators (chillers), cold traps, spray dryers, freeze dryers, water purifiers, stirrers, shakers, laboratory washers, plasma cleaners, fume hoods, clean benches and custom-made industrial products.

In February of 2006, YSA relocated from San Francisco, California to a 17,000 sq. ft. office and warehouse in Santa Clara, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, enabling them to expand product inventory and provide excellent sales, marketing and technical support to distribution partners and end user customers. 

Yamato products are sold to a wide range of industries: life science, biotech, pharmaceutical, industrial, semi-conductor, chemical, technology, automotive, energy, government, academic and more.
