OHLENDORF STORY AND HISTORY
In 1933 Howard Ohlendorf began working at a small Orthodontic Laboratory in St. Louis Missouri. The business began growing and within a couple of years he was able to purchase the business from the owner. In the early 70’s his son Mark Ohlendorf began working at the Laboratory and eventually took over. In 1995 Mark’s son Kevin Ohlendorf began his career in the “Family Business”. In 2013 Kevin purchased the laboratory from Mark and establised the 3rd generation owner of this laboratory.
In August of 2021, the lab was moved to a new state of the art facility just a few miles from the old building. The new Lab has allowed us to put everyone and every department under the same roof. Our new 3D Printing and Process rooms allow us to hand all of your digital scans and printing needs. Our new Laboratory was designed to allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers and improve our production processes to speed up our turnaround and improve the quality of the appliances we fabricate.
Generation to generation, the Ohlendorf Family has grown this business from a one technician laboratory to it’s current size by providing personal service, the highest quality appliances and expert techinical support………..
