Like all good Kiwi companies, Chemical Solutions was started with an idea by someone who was passionate about making it happen. In our case, the man was Peter Vaughan (our founding Chemist) and the idea was to develop products for the fleet industry that met their needs better than other imported products. He pulled his family around him to help manufacture them, and so the business began.
18 years later, the same passion and ideas are evident in the way we run the company today.
- We believe strongly in innovation and the need to develop products that meet our customer’s needs. We have a very productive R & D lab with a full-time chemist on hand to formulate products and monitor our manufacturing quality.
- Family values are at the core of much of what we do – many of Pete’s extended family are still involved in the business.
- Our staff share a passion to be the best we can be – whether that is in manufacturing, customer service, sales or accounts. If you feel there are things we can do better – let us know
- We all see our customers as our most important partners in the business. While this is an easy thing to say, we genuinely believe it and work hard to make sure our customers have a voice in every decision we make.
One of the things that is markedly different today is the factory we operate from. For those of you who have been with us from the beginning, you would remember the small and rundown factory in Glasgow Ave, Wiri. Today, we operate from a state-of-the-art, purpose-built manufacturing facility in Auckland’s Airport Oaks.
Our Aintree facility was the FIRST new manufacturing plant in the country to be granted a Site Location Certificate under HSNO. Standards are extremely high which helps us to enforce high quality standards throughout our manufacturing, packing and dispatch lines.
