Minema Chemical Supplies

About Minema Chemical Supplies

Founded during 1994, MINEMA was formed with the purpose of being a distribution channel to cost effectively supply laboratory products to the smaller user.

Initially handling laboratory reagents only, over the years the business has developed to the extent that we now offer a wide range of general laboratory supplies. Alongside the MINEMA branded range of laboratory reagents, we now offer the VWR ranges of BDH® and PROLABO® reagents, Petrifilm® microbiological testing plates, microbiological media, a vast range of lab glass & plastic wares, indicators, filter papers, rapid tests, and benchtop equipment.

We have grown substantially and have pride in our affiliation with some of Southern Africa's finest laboratories. Simultaneously though, we have been able to stay in touch with those smaller laboratories that were the backbone of our humble beginnings.

Today we offer fully integrated business systems, with a "one-stop" call centre. We utilize a dynamic inventory control module which ensures our stock holding is constantly changing to meet customer requirements. We try to maintain a degree of flexibility within our operation and MINEMA is one of the few producers in it’s field to cater for special and "once off" requirements.

During August 2006 we became ISO9001:2000 registered [Registration No. LS3770] where special emphasis has been placed on our quality control procedures. At our re-registration in September 2009, we were upgraded to the ISO9001:2008 standard. Registration against the ISO14001 environmental standard is currently being pursued.

MINEMA is certified as a B-BEE Level 2 contributor with direct black ownership of 30%. Together with this, we hold a 50% ratio of PDi in senior management.

MINEMA employs individuals who possess some of the finest skills and experience in the Laboratory Chemical arena and a wealth of information is at the disposal of our customer base. Customers may gain confidence and satisfaction from the knowledge that exists, and the technical expertise that may be relied upon.

MINEMA is proud of South Africa's new dispensation and to this end we are continually empowering historically disadvantaged individuals through training and skills development. Our ownership and management profiles reflect the above commitment.

MINEMA’s head office is situated in Randpark, Gauteng. From here we manage ourselves, the sales office, purchasing and quality.

Our production, warehousing, despatch and quality control is based within the AEL secure chemical facility at Modderfontein. We are very proud of our association with Modderfontein Laboratory Services who provide significant services to our operation.

Our delivery service carries goods within the greater Johannesburg and Pretoria metropoles and further afield by special arrangement.

Distribution is further aided by exclusive distributors in Eastern Cape, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Limpopo and the Western Cape. This chain is being extended, and we hope to soon announce arrangements throughout the remainder of South and Southern Africa.
