Chemence doesn’t hire just one kind of chemist. The company is involved in a variety of fields and its researchers and chemical engineers need to mirror that in their backgrounds.
Having a staff filled with people from different disciplines helps in product development. When trying to get the chemical makeup of a product just right, Chemence can approach it not only from an acrylate perspective, but also bring in people specializing in all forms of polymer and light curing science. “One of our biggest strengths is we’re very diversified,” CEO James Cooke says. “What that means from an R&D standpoint is we have all these Ph.D.s from different disciplines and we come up with creative ways to solve customers’ problems.”
