The Northern Chemicals Story

In 1978, the minister for Science, David Thompson opened the initial Northern Chemicals factory where it still remains today with a few additions. Northern Chemicals remains 100% locally owned and operated and has developed a well respected brand of chemical products unique to the tropical regions of Far North Queensland. We remain the longest institutional cleaning product manufacturer in the region.

The company mainly sells wholesale to nearly every industry in the region including sugar, fishing, mining, automotive and tourism etc. We also sell direct to the public at our factory retail showroom.

Many products are suitable for general domestic use. Great savings can be made by purchasing our concentrated products.
