Customers and Our Employees

CM Scientific has a range of customers, from young dynamic undergraduates and post-graduates to experienced Purchasing and Operations Managers and Directors working in large production companies. As a company we aim to support all our customers and understand their priorities whether that is helping to specify a novel custom designed product or offering stock holding and call-off's to support production schedules.

Our customers often have unique applications for the materials that we supply due to the research that they perform - here at CM Scientific we will try to advise and work with customers to provide a solution for their requirements as best we can but sometimes our knowledge will be limited in the cutting edge work that our customers are researching!

We are fortunate that many of our customers are researchers and generously allow us to learn form the work they are doing, helping us to support other customers in similar fields.

As you would expect for a company working in scientific and technical fields our staff are predominately technical graduates and post-graduates with broad backgrounds in both engineering and management roles.

Employees of CM Scientific are also supported by experts based in the Principals that we represent, these leading edge companies have built their reputations through the innovative staff they employ in their specialist fields.

Company Ethos

CM Scientific has built a reputation for its honest approach to doing business, this is demonstrated by its very long standing relationships with Principals and customers alike. We aim to ensure that we are professional and efficient in our approach to both our customers and the Principals that we represent.


Originally based in Worcestershire, the company is now located in Silsden, West Yorkshire in the north of England. Our warehouse and office facility allows us to hold stock of a wide range of products, enabling customer orders to be fulfilled within acceptable lead times.
