St Kilda Chemicals is owned by Nigel Pearce and Gary Johnson, and was formed in 2002 when they bought AMP Chemicals in Port Elizabeth, the company that Gary was working for at the time.

The name St Kilda (pronounced Saint Kilda,) comes from an island off the Scottish Outer Hebrides that is now a World Heritage Site. The name is probably a corruption of the Norse designation 'Skildir'

With the purchase of SAND-ED Agencies in 2006 and the on going expansion of its product range, St Kilda has become one of the largest suppliers of chemicals, and associated products, to the phosphate and metal finishing industry in the Western Cape.

It’s Mission statement and competitive advantage is based on the simple philosophy of providing a full range of high quality products, with fast service delivery, whilst striving to develop long term strategic partnerships with its customers and suppliers.

In order to meet there customer’s technical requirements they have a fully equipped laboratory that includes a salt spray testing facility and employs a fully qualified Industrial chemist. The business has 5 delivery vehicles and a large on site stock holding at its premises in Montague Gardens to ensure availability and quick delivery. St Kilda is well positioned to meet the needs of all its clients, which includes many national and international companies.
