Greg Apple – Co-owner

Greg AppleGreg has spent the past 28 years helping clients specify, design, and install laboratory casework products in Indiana. In 1985 Greg started as the sales representative for Hamilton Industries, a premier manufacturer of laboratory casework and fume hoods, growing that product line as the first choice for lab casework in Indiana. This experience helped develop a broad knowledge of lab design techniques and solutions as well as integration with the construction process. He continues building a reputation of service and commitment today with his own company, Lab Interiors Group, and its partnership with Kewaunee Scientific. Greg’s philosophy with all clients is based upon the policy of honesty and taking an interest in their projects, no matter how small or large in size.

Mark Skole – Co-owner

Mark SkoleA native and current resident of Indianapolis, Mark earned his degree from Indiana University, Bloomington, with a major in Environmental Health. He has extensive ties in Indiana, and has worked over 25 years in the laboratory furnishings market place.

Having concept-to-closeout experience, Mark is well versed in lab project life cycles. Having represented each of the top three manufacturers and several smaller providers of lab casework and fume hoods during his career, Mark has developed broad knowledge regarding what is available, what can be expected, and which solutions make sense for the any given project’s specific application. With this broader view, he understands the best fit for a client may not be what is trending in other labs.

After such diverse exposure to product and end user’s needs, Mark has learned there are many shared features in a well-planned lab, but there are no two alike. Much of his expertise in lab planning and project management is exemplified in his current and past relationships with others in the industry, both locally and nationally. He has acquired invaluable perspectives and insights by working closely with talented architects, end users, suppliers, and builders in this unique industry.

Active listening, goal setting, and partner collaboration typifies Mark’s business approach. Expect that to continue and expect Mark to ask…
