Tebubio - Our history


Our history

Evolving in the challenging world of Life Sciences, every step of the way with you.

Ever since my parents began representing the Teerbedrijf Uithoorn (from which the name “Tebu” originated), our subsequently family-owned business has constantly grown and expanded to become an international company.

We strive to anticipate and respond to the developments in Life Science research, with the top quality service and products our customers expect from us.
