Company Profile

Established in 1995 ChemQuest Limited has re-invented the concept of third-party sourcing and procurement. We are the UK’s leading specialist in purchasing for Research and Development within the chemical, fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

We are focussed on the rapid processing of orders and quick responses to enquiries. It is ChemQuest’s aim to remove the difficulties out of the order processing and invoicing loop, such that scientists receive their products on time and purchasing have full visibility of orders placed and associated costs.

Our commitments are both to the customer and to the supplier. For the customer, we find the product you want at the best price and within project timescales.

For the supplier, we work hard at our supplier relationships to ensure that you are best able to fulfil your own customer service objectives. ChemQuest is a facilitator between client and supplier, not a barrier, and we encourage direct communication between client and supplier wherever needed.

Eighteen years of purchasing experience in the Research sector means that we deliver a fast, efficient and most importantly a cost-effective service. We appreciate how much it costs a large organisation to process an order, and we know that in the majority of cases we can do it much more cheaply for you, because this is our speciality. Streamlining your supply-chain through ChemQuest also offers you access to a virtually unlimited number of suppliers, maintaining maximum choice for scientists, while keeping it simple for the purchasing team; it‘s ChemQuest who set up new accounts or deal with the proforma payments, and we can purchase those one-off items which otherwise may not be practical to obtain. You simply deal with one account – ChemQuest. Out-sourcing to ChemQuest therefore offers your business significant economies of scale and in these times of budget-squeezing, this is a critical success factor.
