AUGUST 2016: Paul Gill Joins SciChem as New Managing Director

We welcome Paul Gill, who joined SciChem in July this year as Managing Director.

Paul said: "I would firstly like to take this opportunity to thank John Turton and Brian Cartland for placing their trust in me and appointing me Managing Director of their company. I accepted this position for two main reasons. The first being the company's amazing history: the family values kept alive by John and Brian are an invaluable part of what makes this company what it is today. I will attempt over the coming years to stay true to those values and operate the company with the same levels of fairness, passion and integrity shown in the past. 

The second thing I liked was John and Brian's recognition that the company needs to change. Their willingness to appoint someone to make those changes and their desire for that change to happen is a milestone in the company's history. The market place is fluid, in order to stay ahead and be successful we must be able to adapt to that market place. 

My background is sales. I have spent my whole career growing profitable sales, from internal account management, to field sales to sales management and as a managing director. 

I am excited about our future."

JAN 2016: Imagination Unleashed: SciChem Launch PASCO's New Wireless Sensor Range

PASCO Scientific, a global leader in 21st century science education, has introduced the first and only line of wireless sensors that are compatible with multiple technology platforms, including Windows, Mac, iPad and iPhone, Android tablets and phones, and Chromebooks.

The new line, which includes wireless pH, temperature, pressure, and force/acceleration sensors, simplifies lab setup and removes the clutter of cables. As a result, students can now spend more time exploring, and perform experiments that were difficult or impossible before. The wireless technology also helps schools save money by eliminating the need for a separate device to connect sensors to a computer, tablet or smartphone. Students can simply transmit the data directly from the wireless sensor to their device.

As PASCO's exclusive UK partner, Scientific & Chemical Supplies (SciChem) will bring this new line of sensors to the UK market, enabling UK schools to lead the way in classroom technology. January's ASE Conference in Birmingham and BETT Exhibition in London will mean that British schools are among the first to get hands-on experience with the new wireless technology.
