About Alpha Chemicals

Learn more about Alpha Chemicals as a company.

Alpha Chemicals History

Alpha Chemicals commenced business in 1956, after the merger of Larsen Chemicals and Mercurials, producing a range of inorganic metal compounds. It expanded at the Cromer site over time to a business with a breadth of manufacturing and formulating expertise as well as chemical supply services. The business operated at the Cromer site until late 2018.

At that time the business moved to its current Wetherill Park location and changed focus. Today, Alpha Chemicals is focusing on its trading operations, supplying a large range of industrial chemicals to a wide range of domestic markets.
