    cEo Letter

    Dear friends and colleagues:

    Happy New Year! We hope that you and your family had a happy and safe holiday season.

    as 2011 was drawing to a close, i found myself reflecting on the events of the past

    year, and planning for the achievements and challenges of 2012. as always, i would

    like to acknowledge the contributions of all our team members, without whom all

    of this would not be possible.

    The major achievements in 2011 include healthy sales growth (and excellent growth

    in north america with 2 major projects won), the launch of our -86c freezers in

    asia, development of pharmaceutical isolators, the move to our new manufacturing

    facility (ETc), the establishment of platform roadmaps for many of our product lines,

    and a re-designed organization structure aimed at taking Esco to the next level.

    one of our team members came to me recently to ask my opinion on what were the most important things to Esco

    employees. i told him that i believed that our employees valued chiefly the creation of a better future for oneself and

    one’s family. He also told me that employees also valued a close team atmosphere across all levels of the organization.

    We agreed. Let’s work together to make Esco a place where we can all realize our dreams.

    This question triggered some further soul searching and made me reflect on the true purpose of business in today’s

    world. at Esco, we believe that we exist to serve all stakeholders, including employees, customers, shareholders and

    society at large. our chairman has frequently referred to the Esco family and encouraged the management team to run

    this company with a heart. We also take pride in the fact that we are developing, manufacturing, selling and servicing

    tools which help our customers make the world safer and healthier. in a small way, Esco contributes positively to society

    by developing products, meeting customer needs, providing stable employment, doing business ethically and generating

    profits which can be re-invested towards innovation and furthering the cause of the enterprise. We may not be a big

    company by any measure, but we can still be a great small company.

    2012 will be another year of change for Esco: new factory, new products, new international sales and service operations,

    new systems and processes. our journey to become a more mature, organized and successful company. as Heraclitus

    said, “only change is constant”. While nothing lasts forever, and “even beauty must die”, let us all take pride in our daily

    efforts and strive to make a meaningful impact on the people around us every single day of our lives.

    new Year, new achievements

    Every year is an opportunity for us to do better than the last. Esco continually pursues developing new and better products and gaining more international certifications. In this year alone, Esco has released the Frontier™ Duo Generation 2, NordicSafe® Low Noise Class II MSC, and CelCulture® CO2 Incubator with Suppressed O2 as well as new certifications such as TIS for Isotherm® Forced Convection Laboratory Oven and the renewal of ISO 9001 and 14001 certificates for Esco Singapore and Bintan, Indonesia.

    To add to this list are new products and more certifications achieved over a span of only 2 months. The Labculture® class ii Type B2 (LB2), for instance, is now available as a generation 2 product, with new and enhanced features as well as some of its proven original design and components. The LB2 g2, as we call it, features lower exhaust volume and pressure to save energy, lower noise for better operator working comfort, lower height to fit into labs with low ceilings, the new Sentinel™ gold controller, and many other great improvements.

    One of the newest products of Esco is the Voyager® Software. Voyager is a Pc-based software package developed for the remote monitoring, datalogging, and programming/device configuration of Esco controlled environment products. This software is compatible with Esco laboratory ovens & incubators, co2 incubators, and ULT freezers. Voyager interfaces with individual Esco equipment over RS485 and up to 16 pieces of equipment may be interfaced to a si
