Our Story

Founded in 1991 as a specialist manufacturer of high-impact aroma chemicals, Endeavour Speciality Chemicals has supplied products and services to companies across the globe for more than 30 years.

Endeavour has become a dependable and reliable supplier of aroma products and speciality chemicals to the food manufacturing industry as well as the fragrance, cosmetic, personal care, household products and pharmaceutical and material science sectors.

The vision of offering something new and exciting to the flavour & fragrance (F&F) industry was clarified during the mid-1990s when we began working with Treatt, now our global distributor to the F&F market. The relationship harnessed the technical prowess of Endeavour with the global reach and distribution acumen of Treatt; this relationship continues to thrive and strengthen today.

As product demand grew, Endeavour invested in a new manufacturing site in the early 2000s. We were granted an IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control) licence as a result of our bespoke abatement plant. Our production facility was designed as two separate laboratories to ensure very odoriferous sulphur-containing products were kept separate from the production of the rest of the product range. We continue to manage the manufacture, storage and packing of our sulphur-containing products with special care and attention. This is regarded as paramount to the continuing success of the business.

The large site also allowed Endeavour to create distinctive areas for Research & Development (R&D), Quality Control (QC) and Packing & Dispatch. Our two R&D laboratories engage in new product development, process optimisation, custom synthesis and full-time equivalent (FTE) studies. Our QC laboratory is a fully-equipped analytical area to ensure our products meet quality standards.

Endeavour is ISO9001:2015 and ISO22000:2018 certified. We are committed to providing products and services of the highest standards to our customers. Our Quality Management System is designed to ensure the reproducibility of our products and services consistently. Our systems allow for complete traceability from raw material to finished product.

In April 2008, Robinson Brothers (Ryders Green) Limited, acquired Endeavour. Established in 1869, Robinson Brothers is one of the UK’s largest independent manufacturers of speciality and fine chemicals serving many chemical sectors. The manufacturing site located in the West Midlands (UK) offers a pilot plant and several large-scale manufacturing plants which has enabled Endeavour to scale manufacture a number of key products whilst reciprocally offering small-scale manufacturing capabilities.

Our products are currently produced and offered in the range covering several grams to several tonnes due to the flexibility reaction vessels offered at both manufacturing sites.
