Commodity contract

Biochemica has been awarded a contract to supply commodity chemicals to a large multi-national based in the UK.

“We are constantly adding to our range of chemical products which has subsequently increased our capabilities beyond our core business of water treatment. This recent supply agreement for products such as phosphoric acid, sodium hypochlorite, acids and caustic illustrates our ability to offer a competitive pricing structure from bulk to small pack sizes,” commented Dave Ruddy of Biochemica.


Chemical supply award

Biochemica has been successful in winning a supply contract for chemical products to councils across England.

“Biochemica supplies a wide range of chemicals, outside of our core business area of water treatment. Our buying power allows us to maximise the best pricing of chemicals from around the world,” commented Dave Ruddy. He added: “Our ever growing portfolio of chemical products has allowed us to move into many different industry sectors, some of which dove-tail with water treatment while others are new, stand alone ventures. Biochemica’s ability to provide complete water management is also now allowing us to become complete chemical providers for industry.”
