Applied Chemicals International - The Company

The Company


Applied Chemicals is a specialised supplier of high quality chemical products and services for improving process efficiency and environmental hygiene throughout the world. Applied's technically innovative and environmentally sound products are used in over 35 countries.

Founded in Australia in 1942, Applied was established in the United Kingdom in 1952. Using the experience of our world wide operations, Applied was the first UK chemical company to bring 'dilution control' and 'use management' to the fleet operations within the Haulage and Passenger Transport industries.

Through working with leading companies we have gained greater experience of customer needs, allowing us to continue leading the way in chemical management. The cost in use saving to be realised from chemical use management also supports improved Health & Safety for staff and reduced risk of chemical damage.
