Our customers are part of our family

With a cohesive global and local network of trusted partners we are able to supply our customers individual needs, whether that be large volume orders, or small supply niche orders - as well as everything in-between. At Alchemy we believe in having fun and enjoying our business and a big part of that comes from being involved in new and exciting projects from our customers. With the help of our supply partners, we love to get stuck in and help you create the extraordinary.

Ultimately, we are committed to providing excellent customer service, through every step of our supply chain.

Just a little different

Our key point of difference is our ownership structure – Alchemy has always been owned by shareholders that are actively involved in the business, and our constitution ensures this will continue. In 50 years’ time our customers and suppliers will still be interacting directly with the owners of Alchemy.
