The Rankin Story

Rankin offers a wide range of refurbished and new equipment, depot refurbishment, installation, training, service contracts, parts, and certain consumables.

Rankin began operations in 1995 in Rob’s garage in Clarkston, MI. In 2006, the company moved its operations to a spacious customized facility in Holly, MI where the company has since grown in capability and reputation.

Rankin believes in producing only high quality refurbished equipment and that is why we spend more time and money on processes and systems than other companies in our industry. We call the Rankin refurbishment process our Extreme Makeover. Refurbished equipment from Rankin clearly stands out from the rest of the pack with its unmatched aesthetic quality and functional durability. Either by coincidence or design, we fit Bing’s definition of Rankin perfectly, “of the best quality or the highest standard.”

Our extreme refurbishing provides a sense of comfort to our clients knowing that they have invested in truly refurbished instruments that are dependable workhorses. They also reap the economic benefit of low prices, typically 50 to 80% below the prices of equivalent new equipment. Rankin has saved laboratories tens of thousands of dollars in acquisition costs, allowing them to buy more
