Empire Labs was born in San Francisco back in 1996. The company began as a manufacturer of state-of-the-art, highly customized materials intended for medical and prosthetic use. Empire's methods and materials were unique, and their reputation as creators of safe, high-quality, simple-to-use molding and casting compounds began to grow.
It wasn′t long before Hollywood found Empire Labs and struck a deal with them. Their materials were perfect for easily and inexpensively creating incredibly life-like props and highly detailed body part castings. The materials were especially effective in horror flicks and special effects scenes. In 1997 a production company requested some realistic penis replicas of varying shapes and sizes for an independent film. With a few small tweaks, Empire turned their existing orthotic kit into a dildo kit, and the first Make Your Own Dildo kit was born. The kits were such a big hit on set, Empire decided to create a retail version.
The Make Your Own Dildo kit provides a simple, safe, all-inclusive method for creating an exact rubber duplicate of any penis. The quality is amazing, down to the most intricate detail, and the process can be done entirely within the home and without the need for complicated mixing or heating.
In 2003 the smaller, lighter Clone-A-Willy kit was created to ease shipping and packaging costs. These new kits were an even bigger success than the Make Your Own Dildo kits, although sales of both still continue to rise year after year. Clone-A-Willy has become a key product for many adult industry retailers, and sales are into the multiple millions worldwide.
Currently Empire Labs boasts a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and shipping warehouse, and a multinational sales force. The hugely successful Clone-A-Willy Kit has been translated into many languages, and can be found in almost any novelty store around the world.
From the highly sought after Clone-A-Willy kit to a variety of other novelty items, Empire will continue to supply the growing demand for its own unique, unconventional products well into the 21st century.
