Factory Direct Savings

In the field of R&D, low price and high quality equipment is always in need. Many researchers turn to the online super stores for “the best” prices, but do not realize there are much better prices available from the Factories themselves. Schoonover is the contracted representative of these factories. With the factory R&D discount and low prices, you can start saving with Schoonover.

Hey Everyone! I want to introduce myself.

My name is Blake Johnson. I have over 4 years of R&D experience as both a researcher and a lab technician at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia and Nanjing Agricultural University in Nanjing, China. As your University Specialist, I want to bring an experience where your projects and problems will not only be solved, but constantly supported. I understand the stresses of the University Grants and budgeting process as well as life as a researcher and will do everything I can to make those stresses easier.

My promise to you as my R&D customer is three pronged:

  • Understanding of your situation as an R&D Customer
  • Technical Support for even the oddest applications frequently found in R&D
  • The best University Discounts I have available with no catches

I am available through many channels of communication. Don’t hesitate to use the number and email to the right to email, text, and call if I can ever be of assistance. You can also get immediate help through the chat bar at the bottom right (just ask for Blake). Also follow Schoonover on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter for intriguing Vacuum articles, ground breaking research, and updates on your current Schoonover deals.
