SciChem are unique in being able to offer laboratory chemicals, equipment and consumable supplies to commercial, industrial and research customers throughout the UK and Ireland, while also retaining a strong position in supplying science equipment for schools throughout the UK, Ireland and over 150 countries worldwide.

A Unique Approach

Established in 1957, we are proud to retain our position as an independent company that is small enough to be responsive and flexible yet large enough to offer customers access to many leading brands. Our core values are rooted in our history as a private, family-owned business and dedication to customer service is at the heart of everything that we do. We provide precisely what you need, when you need it. Please do not hesitate to contact your local sales representative for further details.

We are unique in our approach to sourcing and supplying a comprehensive range of the highest quality, best value products from prominent manufacturers; and in addition, there are many items in our catalogue that cannot be found elsewhere. Fostering links with key partners means that we know that we will have a product to meet your needs and suit your budget. In addition, our own brand of equipment incorporates many features that have been suggested by our customers, and combines great features with excellent value.

SciChem in the UK and Ireland

The head office and warehouse is centrally located near Wolverhampton with good access to the national motorway network. We also operate branches in Aberdeen in Scotland and Cork in Ireland, enabling us to provide both a local presence in these areas as well as a specialised service to our customers in the Petrochemical sector.

Whenever possible we prefer to deliver using our own transport, and manage a fleet of vehicles with drivers fully trained to the latest ADR regulations.

Our Offer

In addition to our standard product lines, we are also able to source ranges of Chemicals, Glassware, Consumables and Laboratory Equipment that are not listed in the catalogue or on the website. Please contact us with the details of what you are looking for and we will be happy to provide detailed quotations on request.

To support our customers in all aspects of getting optimum performance from their laboratory, we also offer a number of ancillary services such as Chemical Waste Disposal, Microscope Servicing and Balance Servicing.

For further information on any of these aspects, please contact either our customer services team or your territory manager.
