Company Overview

Borchers, a Milliken & Co. company, is a leading supplier of coating additives and specialty catalyst solutions. Their products — including cobalt-free driers, dispersants, and more — are used to enhance coatings across a variety of applications and industries.

As a global manufacturer, Borchers has technical service teams in the US, Germany, and China. To meet constantly changing customer needs, they prioritize quick response times and strive for effective collaboration both within and outside of the organization.

Borchers chose Alchemy's global electronic lab notebook (ELN) and laboratory information management system (LIMS) to help its technical service teams meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations and specific market demands.

The Solution

With the integration of Alchemy's ELN and LIMS, Borchers' application development and testing are handled by one system. This unified system helps them to easily capture data at each step — from opportunities, projects, and requirements to formulations, testing, analysis, feedback, and beyond.

Alchemy's dynamic comparison tables have made formulating and analysis easier than ever. When starting a project, Borchers can use Alchemy to search for and reuse previous formulations and results. They can also track project management, including status, outcome, and commercial success.
