CalaChem is one of the UK’s leading independent chemical companies. Based in Grangemouth, Scotland we are ideally located in the heart of the Scottish chemical industry.

At CalaChem, we have a diverse business portfolio which consists of the following three business units:

  • Contract Manufacturing Services – we manufacture agrochemical actives which are used in the protection of crops and specialty chemicals and biocides which are used in a variety of industries
  • Environmental Services – we have our own on-site large scale effluent treatment plant which treats aqueous waste from industrial processes
  • Property and Site Services – on our site we have offices and laboratory space available for rent and land for sale for industrial development

Our strategy is continued profitable growth and the provision of long-term security for our employees in a workplace which is safe, beneficial to the environment and our neighbours and is both enjoyable and challenging.

To achieve this, we aim to be your “Service Partner of Choice”. We have long established successful relationships with our major customers and want them to consider CalaChem as an extension of their own business.

CalaChem has been an independent company since 2010 and is owned by the Munich based investment company, Aurelius Equity Opportunities. The name CalaChem is derived from Caledonia, which is the Latin name for the northern part of Britain.

CalaChem is committed to the guiding principles of Responsible Care ®. We are members of the Chemical Industries Association and the European Fine Chemicals Group (CEFIC).
