The Victorian Chemical Company is a manufacturer and marketer of specialty agricultural and industrial oleo-chemicals.
Established in 1933 near the centre of Melbourne, Australia, the company has built a world-wide reputation for the
development and supply of innovative and customised products. In the early years, Victorian Chemicals concentrated
on serving the textile and tanning industries that were booming in the inner city.
During the 1980's several other agricultural products were developed including Bloat control
Products for cattle and Insecticidal spray oils for Horticulture.
During the 1990s development work focused on adjuvants for Broadacre applications. HASTENTM
is a key product that has been commercialised from this work and it is now available in many countries.
The 2000's saw Vicchem move its primary manufacturing facility to a new site at Coolaroo, in
Melbourne's north, greatly increasing production capability and capacity. Development of new products continued
with the introduction of HOT-UPTM and DELUGETM for agriculture and DETACHTM mould release agent for concrete tile
manufacture. More recently, further work has resulted in SECURE 33TM being commercialised as an curing compound used in the construction of roads.
In the years ahead, Victorian Chemicals remains committed to further developing its agricultural
and industrial product ranges and providing our customers with high performing, environmentally
responsible products by utilising the skills, knowledge and experience of our staff.
