ReAgent Enjoys 35 Years of Trading
In 2012 ReAgent is celebrating 35 years of trading. With employee care a cornerstone of the company's management strategy, ReAgent's goal is to become the number one chemical supplier in the UK.
Based in Runcorn, Cheshire, ReAgent has a wide customer base over a range of industries including engineering companies, pharmaceutical companies, Formula 1 teams, power generation, research establishments and learning institutions.
When the Company first started, it had only 5 members of staff. Today the business has grown to employ 30 people. Every year ReAgent supplies thousands of customers from private individuals and sole traders to export houses and multinational organisations. As the Company has grown it has extended its product range and now offers over 1000 chemical products which can be bought online via the Company’s website.

Still privately owned, ReAgent is now headed by Managing Director Richard Hudson, grandson of the original founders. When the Company was started, the owners took particular care to look after its staff by giving them a generous pension, holiday allowance and life cover, as well as being a flexible employer. This attitude towards employment has remained a cornerstone to the present day and is reflected by the Company’s accreditation to Investors in People (IIP).
