Brief Bio:
Founded in the United Kingdom in 1926, Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. is a leading independent manufacturer of performance and speciality chemicals. The company manufactures over 100 products, from kilogramme to multi-tonne quantities, and offers an experienced and flexible custom manufacturing service. With offices in the USA and China and a global network of distributors, Thomas Swan exports to over 80 countries worldwide and is well placed to service the UK and international markets. As one of the first chemical companies to be certified to ISO14001, 9001 and Responsible Care Thomas Swan strives to achieve and maintain the highest quality and environmental standards. Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. was founded by ‘Tommy’ Swan at its present site in Consett, County Durham in the North East of England. From early beginnings as a road surfacing company, using the waste product (slag) from the local steel industry as a raw material, Thomas Swan has diversified into a wide range of performance chemical products and processes. Today the business is divided into 9 key product groups: Colours (high-quality colour pigment preparations) Rubber Chemicals (products for the rubber processing and polymer industries) Ink resins (specialist resins for printing inks) Biocides (bactericide and fungicidal products for the household, medical and industrial markets) Powder Coating Additives (curing and matting agents for powder coatings) Carbon Nanomaterials (commercial single and multi-wall carbon nanotube manufacturing) Personal Care (custom manufacture of hair-dye chemicals) Supercritical Processing (a world class continuous phase supercritical fluid reactor) Custom Manufacture (custom synthesis, contract and toll manufacture to ISO standards) Thomas Swan prides itself on an innovative approach to chemical manufacturing. By working closely with a number of leading universities, the company has developed cutting-edge technologies including the world’s first continuous-phase supercritical facility and the UK’s first commercial-scale carbon nanotube plant. The company has a well established customer base that ranges from major blue-chip companies to small start-ups alike. Above all Thomas Swan aims to combine the approachability and flexibility of a family-run business with the efficiency and professionalism of an international chemical manufacturing company.
