A Source of Innovation

A Source of Innovation NiCHe Materials; experienced specialists in the procurement of exotic and ‘commercially unavailable’ chemicals & reagents, have completed a technology marketing project with award winning animation studio Animated Technologies.

The project came about with a desire to create a simple explainer video for NiCHe Materials’ varied procurement services.  Dr Dave Evans, BioPharma Business Specialist at NiCHe explained, “Here at NiCHe we serve a number of diverse scientific sectors encompassing Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Veterinary, Speciality Chemicals, OLED, Security and Diagnostics.  Common throughout all our enquiries is the diversity and scale of the chemicals and reagents we are asked to find.  Our clients have varied but precise requirements for the materials they wish to source, and we acknowledge this with a very hands-on, personable touch.  Getting across this rich diversity and the deep sector knowledge we apply to each enquiry required a technology marketing agency to understand our operations and the value we deliver to our clients”.  Dave continued, “with a complicated brief, Animated Technologies managed to interpret and condense the very essence of our 10 years of operations into a professional 3-minute animated video.  I feel they have excelled beyond our brief and delivered our message in a very accessible, entertaining and creative way.”

Working with clients at all stages of their products life cycle – from exploratory R&D, scale-up, GMP and commercial batch manufacturing – NiCHe Materials work globally to source materials through their network of 100+ approved industry manufacturing partners.  “We’re all about assisting clients to meet their strategic short term and long-term material requirements” Dave added.  “We work truly globally delivering solutions for SMEs, CROs, CDMOs and Academic Institutions alike.  If a chemical is unusual, exotic or a valuable material we apply our specialist knowledge to try to find an off-the-shelf solution whenever possible.  In instances where we cannot find an off-the-shelf solution, we will engage one of our manufacturing partners to deliver a bespoke make”.  Dave concluded, “over the years we’ve found we’re an ideal bolt-on for companies without a dedicated procurement professional or department.  We work with our clients on an ad-hoc basis and when our services are required, we work around the clock to get chemicals and reagents into their hands as quickly as possible fulfilling their quality and timeline aspirations”.
