Our People

Chemicals and Research was established in 1976 and has grown steadily over the years into one of the major independent manufacturers of synthetic resins in Southern Africa. 

The company was founded by Mr Werner Heise and later joined by Mr Gerhard Buchert.  Chemicals and Research is now driven by a dynamic team of people from multi-disciplinary backgrounds.  The team is led by Mr Aidan Siebert.

Our Culture and Business Philosophy

At Chemicals and Research, we nurture a culture of honesty, integrity and creativity. We believe that the key ingredients to our successful growth are:

• our capability to offer technology solutions to our customers 
• our focus on consistency of quality 

Our business philosophy is “we will grow our business by helping you to grow yours”. We live this principle by imparting training and skills to the customer, and subsequently increasing efficiency and profitability.

Our Future

Our competitive edge is having a focussed approach of on-going research and development that targets improvement to existing products as well as entry into new market sectors.

Our vision is to be strategically positioned and aligned with business partners having a similar vision – that of the fundamental benefit of research in an ever changing South African and global environment.
