Our Story

Ultrachem is one of the UK’s largest independent manufacturers and suppliers of coatings and press room consumables, supplying UK and global Offset, Heatset, Coldset and Flexo print businesses.

Established in 1981, we remain a family run business that has grown considerably now employing 60 staff.

Ultrachem has built a significant global distribution business and has over 1,500 UK customers. We export to over 100 countries including Ireland, Eastern Europe, USA, the Middle East, India, Central & South America and Australia.


Our Manufacturing Expertise

Ultrachem has made a considerable investment to ensure that all of our manufacturing and testing equipment continues to be state of the art. With one main distribution and office site, based in London, we also have manufacturing bases in Bristol and Leeds, with additional distribution hubs in Nottingham and Dublin.

Our production facilities are backed up by two research and development laboratories. One based in Leeds for press room and ink chemistry, and one in Bristol for both development and production of coatings and inks, which is ISO 9000 accredited.

This expertise is supported up by our commitment to only using high quality raw materials and packaging giving our customers total ‘peace of mind’.

For all our products we can immediately supply the necessary Safety Data Sheets and technical performance information.


Dedication to Customer Service:

All our customers have access to a first-class fully trained customer service team that provides telephone support and can deal with day to day enquiries. In addition we also have a national team of expert technical sales people many of whom are fully qualified printers who are readily available to help on-site with any technical queries.
