Walker Barrier Systems ---- History

Founded in 1943, Walker Stainless Equipment Company began as a welding repair shop in New Lisbon, Wisconsin. In 1980 Walker Stainless Equipment began making stainless steel glove boxes for the nuclear industry at several DOE sites. 10 years later, Walker began making stainless steel isolators as a subcontractor for the pharmaceutical industry.

Walker Barrier Systems (WBS) was formed in 1996 as a division of Walker to provide isolators directly to the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

Walker Barrier manufactures and designs innovative products including isolators, downflow booths, restricted access barriers (RABs), mobile clean rooms (MCR) and vessels. No one in the US industry can offer all these products under one roof.

Extract Technology LTD ----- History

Extract Technology was founded in 1981 initially operating from a small office and workshop in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

Even within the early years the business established a prestigious international client portfolio based on a reputation for excellence. Over the following years we have been at the forefront of many significant developments and have striven to maintain our position as one of the leading containment and aseptic manufacturers in the world.

While we have evolved, we are proud of our heritage and continue to uphold the principles behind our success.
