We offer an extensive range of laboratory and science equipment for primary, secondary and tertiary education, as well as additional services, such as laboratory chemical waste disposal and microscope servicing.
Our core values are rooted in our history as a private, family-owned business. Established in 1957 and remaining as an independently owned company, we continue to build on our heritage in order to meet our philosophy of "Inspiring Tomorrow's Scientists Today".
Products and Services
Our product portfolio is continually evolving and expanding. Our Primary Science Kits are affordable and customisable, and are tailored to the new primary science curriculum.
We also aim to be at the forefront of technological innovation in the classroom. As the exclusive distributor of PASCO products in the UK, we have unrivalled access to technology-based solutions for hands-on science teaching. Primary schools using tablets in the classroom can benefit from our affordable PASCO Wireless Sensors and Primary Science bundles.
Our support network extends to you. Our nationwide sales force, supported by a team of Customer Service executives will support, guide and train you on the products that you purchase. Our close links with suppliers and industry experts enables us to stage a regular programme of training events and workshops to share product expertise, ideas and best practice.
Operating from three sites across the UK and Republic of Ireland, we are proud to offer national coverage while retaining our local focus.
England, Scotland & Wales
The head office and warehouse is located in Bilston, West Midlands between Birmingham and Wolverhampton with good access to the M6 and M5. Wherever practical, deliveries are made using our own fleet of vehicles and fully trained drivers.
Customers are supplied directly from our main warehouse in Bilston. Our standard delivery service for our Northern Irish customers is 2-3 days, however, for urgent orders we can deliver more quickly if required. After sales and support is provided by our dedicated customer support team.
Republic of Ireland
The addition of Shaw Scientific into the Scientific and Chemical family has enabled us to broaden our offering to the Irish education market and combine it with our industrial experience, giving unrivalled service to our customers. Our Irish branch is based in Carrigtwohill, Co Cork and was initially established to serve the dairy and pharmaceutical markets. It now not only serves industrial customers but has become a major supplier to our education customers in the area.
SciChem retains a strong presence in the non-education sector, supplying customers in the food manufacturing, automotive and oil and gas sectors, among many others.
Rest of World
The International division based in Bilston, West Midlands represents the company for all other countries, and has expertise in quoting, consolidating and delivering large projects around the world.
