      Speciality chemicals

      The industrial detergent business falls within the area that in the industry is referred to as either the allied chemicals sector or Industrial and Institutional chemicals (I&I) and falls within the speciality chemicals sector.   

      Biocel is a formulator of proprietary performance chemicals deployed primarily in the food and beverage sectors. We maintain stocks of fast-moving raw materials to ensure a capability for rapid response to customer’s orders. 

      The company operates to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality System which demands a comprehensive assessment procedure for vetting and approving suppliers.

      Packaging represents a significant imperative for Biocel being compliant with CPL and REACH legislation. The company manufactures products from one litre to tanker deliveries, with 5, 10, 20 and 25L being the most common, 200 L drums are less common with the industrial customers purchasing product in 1000 L IBCs (intermediate bulk containers).

      Supply Chain Approach

      We operate our own Hazchem compliant transport fleet – allowing us to offer flexible delivery schedules meeting our customer’s supply requirements throughout Ireland.  We take pride in having a reputation for being prompt and efficient with our Haz-chem deliveries to all other industries that we serve, guaranteeing that customers will never be without the products they need for processes.

      Global Outreach

      Though based in, and proud to be in, the island of Ireland, we have a far-reaching objective of disseminating our message to companies globally.  We have established, and are looking to cement partnerships, and grow on emerging business opportunities in Europe and Asia.

      Biocel is proud to have its own product portfolio, preferring to focus solely on building a deep understanding of the science and technology necessary to allow us to offer agile, flexible and qualitative services to our clients, and meet the deadlines required for each project.

      Case Study

      Brexit has posed a logistical challenge for many companies reliant on the supply of products from the U.K. In late 2020 and 2021, Biocel were contacted by many manufacturers unable to obtain timely resupply of much needed product.  

      Though many of the products were not within Biocel’s portfolio we were able to either source alternative materials through our network of suppliers or develop substitute materials at our R&D Lab.
