Supplier of Laboratory Chemicals & Consumables

Thembane Chemicals was established at the end of 2013 and has been operating successfully for the past 4 years. A gap in the market for the supply of laboratory chemicals and consumables for small to medium enterprises was identified as an opportunity for Thembane Chemicals.
