Our logistics department has a full time customer service function dedicated to monitoring the progress of customer orders, ensuring that any issues are dealt with as soon as possible and customers are kept fully informed of the progress of their deliveries.
Alfa Chemicals holds stock of a wide range of regularly sold chemicals at its UK warehouse. Non-stock items are brought in to order, and lead times vary depending on the manufacturer. To help reduce lead times for non-stock items we can arrange to hold stock of customer specific materials, provided that the demand is covered by a call-off order.
Alfa Chemicals have a long history with a list of warehouses around the country, including our own in Reading, Berkshire. All warehousing has approval for handling hazardous and restricted chemicals, we also offer heated and cooled storage (and transport) when needed. Alfa Chemicals uses specialist chemical freight companies that have experience in handling hazardous materials.
Alfa Chemicals is fully aware of the evolution of the REACh regulations and has a plan to ensure that we can continue to supply the ingredients required by our customers in line with the REACh regulations. Because of this, all of our partners have confirmed that all in-scope substances have been preregistered in accordance with the requirements of REACh and we have appointed a nominated person to oversee all matters relating to the REACh regulations to ensure we are fully compliant.
