Expansion Project

Rochem is presently undergoing a major expansion plan to upgrade and enhance its laboratory, warehouse and storage facilities. We have recently purchased land space of 2500 square meters in Suez, free zone area, Egypt to increase our stock list of additives and to accomodate the most innovative models of testing instruments in our independent laboratories.

The new laboratory extension will increase our testing capabilities to handle over 10’000 reports per annum, and has dedicated sections for chromatography, ICP, analytical and petroleum instruments.

The project is scheduled for completion in November 2017.

Goal Zero

In line with the latest Health and Safety industry standards, Rochem has adopted the GOAL ZERO approach achieving no harm and no leaks across all of our operations.

This goal is shared among all working for Rochem and we expect the same standards with all suppliers and third parties working with us. In addition, Rochem has a role in process safety making sure that our facilities are well designed, safely operated and properly maintained to prevent leaks of hazardous materials or safety hazards for our employers or visitors.
