Conceived from a desire to solve difficult synthetic chemistry problems and to provide jobs for home-grown PhD organic chemists, ‘Epichem’ was established in 2002 by three colleagues after one too many ales in a London pub.

Epichem launched with a small team of five chemists in a laboratory located at Murdoch University, Perth Western Australia in 2003. 


In 2015, the company commissioned and moved into a new, state-of-the-art facility in Technology Park, Bentley, arguably the best equipped private laboratory in the southern hemisphere for small molecule synthesis. 


In 2016, Epichem was certified to ISO 9001: 2015 and in 2018, achieved accreditation to ISO 17025 and ISO 17034 – the most valuable certifications for reference material manufacturers globally today.


In 2018, Epichem celebrated 15 years of sustained success in supporting customers in Australia and Worldwide with our highly specialised chemistry research services and products.
