In 1985, Dr. William H. Philpott became interested in Bio-Magnetics. He read what little information there was printed at that time. What he read fascinated him, so he decided to do some research on his own. He bought some raw uncoated magnets at an extravagant price. His research developed positive results and he wanted to expand his project. His business manager and son-in-law, Linwood Lothrop, said, “Dad, we have to be able to make these magnets more affordable. I’ll check this out for you” After some hard work, Lin did find better prices. Because the magnets were raw, there was a need to coat them and make them more people friendly. Thus, Enviro-Tech Products was conceived as a separate company in 1985. Enviro-Tech then started selling to other physicians and we started joining medical conventions to demonstrate our products. We were considered a little strange in 1985, we like to think we were just ahead of the times.
Polar Power Magnets is our brand name, and Enviro-Tech Products is the company division of Lothrop Technologies Incorporated, that is owned and operated by Lin Lothrop, and Joyce Lothrop (Dr. Philpott’s daughter). Dr. Philpott did not directly own or operate our company; he spent his time in doing he loves best, researching Bio-Magnetics at his office next door. Dr. Philpott helped us with our designs and exclusively uses our products in his research projects. We consider ourselves lucky to be able to use Dr. Philpott’s research results to make the best Bio-Magnetic products for you.
Since 1985, Enviro-Tech (dba of Lothrop Technologies, Inc.) has grown many times over, thanks to our many loyal customers. We now also have a sister company, Lothrop
Magnetic Specialties, that manufactures magnetic products for other companies.
We are proud that our high quality magnetic products have helped thousands of our customers to live a happier, healthier more energetic life.
