Year Founded:

Cheiron Resources Ltd is a small, woman-owned manufacturer of a line of testing kits for field screening of petroleum-based products in soil, water, or on solid surfaces.

Formed in April 1995 as a manufacturers’ agent and industrial marketing company, for almost a decade, we helped clients around the world evaluate and develop international markets in several sectors including: forestry, bio-remediation of animal waste and the environment.

In 2005, due to circumstances beyond our control, we were put in a position where we reluctantly assumed the role of manufacturer.  However, ultimately, our decade of experience in both domestic and international markets provided us with a strong basis for our new role.  We learned some very valuable lessons from the manufacturers we had worked with:

The most important lessons were:

  • NEVER make claims we can’t support. Having experienced first-hand the frustrations of working with an unprofessional and unreliable supplier - we entered our role as manufacturer with a firm commitment to the concept of integrity and respect for our customers!
  • Most importantly, we learned our customers are loyal to us because they value and respect long-term relationships with their suppliers and they know we continually strive to offer a professional service, good quality products, at reasonable prices, in a timely fashion.

With these lessons well learned and with the encouragement and commitment of several key clients we developed our OilScreen® line of field screening tools - and we never looked back! In fact, we are even evaluating expansion into Europe and Australia!
