1894-2014 with passion and professional touch

Algol Chemicals is part of Finnish Algol Group. Algol established operations in Helsinki, Finland in 1894, when Albert Goldbeck-Löwe started an agency business supplying industrial chemicals. He imported products like tar rope, flax seed oil, metal products and soda for the Finnish industry. Algol’s international expansion began in 1991 when it entered the Estonian market, followed soon thereafter by the other Baltic markets, Russia and Scandinavia. Today, Algol is an international multi-branch corporation that remains family owned.

Algol Chemicals offers a wide range of industrial chemicals, specialty chemicals and polymers for industrial production processes. We source our products globally and serve our customers locally. Algol Chemicals distributes a broad range of industrial chemicals, including around 3000 individual products from over a hundred different suppliers.
