The Source Convent Drive
Founded by Robert Lenk in Shepshed in Leicestershire, ROMIL Chemicals Ltd first began to manufacture high quality solvents in 1983, in response to the fast growing HPLC market at that time. Export quickly became an important part of the business; in 1987 the company won the prestigious Queen's Award for Export and, a year later, appointed its first international distributor. ISO 9000 quality management registration followed in 1994 and in the same year, the company, now ROMIL Ltd, relocated to Cambridge, a location that has proven to be a natural fit for an innovative, independent manufacturer of premium quality laboratory chemicals. The new base was named 'The Source' because in the same way that a river is at its purest at the source, so it should be for chemical reagents.
