HELs motto is better chemistry – faster; our products are designed to enable research chemists to achieve their goals faster, more accurately and more efficiently.
Operating internationally, HEL is a company that specialises in research and pre-pilot scale chemical reactors and systems. We provide both automated and manual tools for process R&D to clients in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and petrochemical industries, as well as in academia.


Originally established in 1987 purely as a consultancy, the company has grown to include a complete team of chemists and chemical engineers, working from our fully equipped testing facility in the UK. Innovation and new product development through process screening are ingrained in HELs culture, and our specialist software development team with now over 20 years of automation and control experience, is continually improving the most powerful and chemist friendly software available.

Qualified employees, modern production procedures, and chemical process equipment and technologies, as well as quality control, are the basis for our outstanding products and services.
