A Brief Overview of Rheochem

Over 25 years of experience in the industry

Being in operation since 1993 has afforded us the time to become experts in what we do. As the saying goes “It takes 25 years to get 25 years of experience’’.

Throughout the years, Rheochem has dedicated ourselves to continually improving our product and service offerings. By constantly keeping up with advances in technology, and through partnerships with market leaders, we at Rheochem have placed ourselves strategically to provide the best in water treatment solutions.

What we Do

Rheochem is a respected supplier of specialised water treatment chemicals and services to the industrial, municipal, agricultural and hospitality industries of South Africa.

Our primary products and services find application in all aspects of water treatment. We are also very active in the Southern African Sugar industry, where process chemicals are our speciality. Rheochem source products and raw materials from world-class manufacturers, as well as boasting our own production facility.

Rheochem is ISO 9001:2015; ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 certified. Our water treatment polymers are NSF accredited for safe use in drinking water.

Giving Back

Rheochem are truly passionate about providing young people with education and work experiences that will lead to genuine employment opportunities. We are also active in terms of Corporate Social Investment, aiming to run sustainable programmes.

As well as other varied training opportunities, the Rheochem Technical Learnership programme has been running successfully for more than 15 years, resulting in a total of 27 previously disadvantaged individuals successfully completing their National Certificate in either Water & Wastewater Treatment Process or Chemical Operations. During 2018 we started Administration-based Learnerships, and the success of this programme has inspired us to continue it in 2019. Most of those who qualify are employed by Rheochem but we ensure that those who cannot be integrated are assisted in finding work elsewhere. 

Our long-term Corporate Social Investment programme has been in assisting a small rural school in Kwa-Zulu Natal to develop their computer room. What is special about this project is that even local “gogos” are learning to work on the computers after school hours.

BBBEE Compliance

We don’t only comply with all audited BBBEE codes – at Rheochem we embrace the sound principles behind the scoring system.

In September 2005 our Black Empowerment strategy, based on the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Scorecard, was implemented. Over the past 19 years Black empowerment has remained inherent in the way in which we operate, as demonstrated by our current Level 1 BBBEE rating (January 2019 Audit outcome).
