Sigma Aldrich Corp

Business Description


The Company develops, manufactures and distributes the broadest range of high quality biochemicals and organic chemicals available in the world. These chemical products and kits are used in scientific and genomic research, biotechnology, pharmaceutical development, the diagnosis of disease and chemical manufacturing. The Company operates in 34 countries, offers 85,000 products and distributes these products in over 150 countries.

The Company consists of three business units, Scientific Research, Biotechnology and Fine Chemicals, which define the Company’s approach to serving customers.

Sales and Distribution:

Our products were sold to over 60,000 accounts representing over 1,000,000 individual customers, including hospitals, universities, pharmaceutical, industrial, diagnostics and biotechnology companies and commercial laboratories as well as non-profit organizations and governmental institutions.

Production and Purchasing:

The Company has chemical production facilities in Milwaukee and Sheboygan, Wisconsin; St. Louis, Missouri; Houston, Texas; Bellefonte, Pennsylvania; Australia; Canada; Germany; India; Israel; Japan; Switzerland and the United Kingdom. A minor amount of production is done by some of the Company’s other subsidiaries. Biochemicals are primarily produced by extraction and purification from yeasts, bacteria and other naturally occurring animal and plant sources. Organic and inorganic chemicals and radiolabeled chemicals are primarily produced by synthesis. Chromatography media and columns are produced using proprietary chemical synthesis and proprietary preparation processes. Similar processes are used for filtration and sample collection processes.

Competition:

Substantial competition exists in all of the Company’s marketing and production areas. Although no comprehensive statistics are available, the Company believes it is a major supplier of organic chemicals and biochemicals for research and of chromatography products for analyzing and separating complex chemical mixtures. While the Company generally offers thousands of chemicals in stock and analyzes many of its products, some of the Company’s products are unusual and have relatively little demand. There are many competitors who offer a limited quantity of chemicals. In addition, several companies compete with the Company by offering thousands of chemicals, although few of them stock or analyze substantially all of the chemicals they offer for sale.
