Our Experience

Sychem has successfully supplied, installed and commissioned sterilisation and decontamination equipment within some of the biggest names within the UK medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical, and biomedical sectors. 2012 saw the completion of our first £1 million project with the Health Protection Agency. This project featured Sychem as the Principle Contractor with other trades such as building and M&E contractors being subcontracted.

This project included the supply of 3 large autoclaves, 3 washing systems, 1 bottle processing system, 1 material handling system and a glassware washer dryer. The project required the successful tenderer to identify the most appropriate equipment for the facilities needs and identify the most effective design layout for the new equipment to be located within.

In addition to the above our client list includes NHS, BMI Healthcare and Spire Healthcare, all major universities, research facilities and contract research institutions. All sites have continued to use our high quality planned preventive maintenance and support service on all equipment supplied.
