Founded in 1992, SAFECHEM Europe is a leading pan-European provider of services and products related to the safe and sustainable use of solvents for surface and dry cleaning. Applications are primarily in the automotive, aerospace and measuring instrument sectors, as well as in the medical instrument and optical technology industries.
