Family Owned & Operated

We started out as a very small group of individuals working out of our founder’s basement.  Still today, we are a family run business with a direct emphasis on client and employee satisfaction.  Our goal is to exceed the expectations of every client by offering outstanding customer service, increased flexibility, and greater value.

We believe in a healthy work life balance for our employees.  We recognize that our employees are our most valuable resource, so we support an environment where we all feel valued, respected, and empowered.

Today, C & A Scientific is headquartered in Manassas, Virginia (in the DC Metro area) with an additional distribution center on the West Coast.
