For over forty years, Shaw Scientific have been leading the way in providing teaching resources and equipment for schools in Ireland. Now a part of Scientific & Chemical Supplies, the Shaw brand represents our shared values in supplying the education markets of both Ireland and the UK.

We are unique in being able to offer laboratory and science equipment for primary, secondary and tertiary education, while also retaining a strong focus on laboratory supplies for the commercial and industrial markets.

Our core values are rooted in our history as a private, family-owned business. Established in 1957 and remaining as an independently owned company, we continue to build on our heritage in order to meet our philosophy of Inspiring Tomorrow's Scientists Today. To achieve this, and to meet the needs of the education curriculum, our product portfolio is continually evolving and expanding.

We also aim to be at the forefront of technological innovation in the classroom. As the exclusive distributor of Fourier products in Ireland, we have unrivalled access to world leading science education technology-based solutions.

Another range that is exclusively available from SciChem is the Lascells range of Physics products. The Lascells brand is at the forefront of British design and engineering. Bringing excitement to experimental studies, the extensive Lascells range is designed by professionals who combine expertise in teaching, production engineering, electronics and product design

Fostering links with key partners means that we know that we will have a product to meet your needs and suit your budget.

Our nationwide sales force, supported by a team of Customer Service executives will support, guide and train you on the products that you purchase. Our close links with suppliers and industry experts enables us to share product expertise, ideas and best practice.

Operating from three sites across the UK and Republic of Ireland, we are proud to offer national coverage while retaining our local focus. Scientific & Chemical Supplies' head office and warehouse is centrally located near Wolverhampton with good access to the national motorway network.
