Celebrating 5 Years of Chemishield
Where have the five years gone? This year as we reflect over how far Chemishield has come and all we’ve accomplished, many words come to mind – pride, challenging, innovative, humble and gratitude. The word that strikes me the most is gratitude. We are so grateful to our customers, team, and community for being a part of their lives and making a difference.
Today we celebrate five years of customers, employees, community and our business growth – seeing it evolve and being part of its story. Throughout this time we have developed a connected network, built strong relationships with our customers and so too our relationship with our loyal employees.
From our humble beginnings, we created a complete, innovative waste management software system that saves money, prevents accidents, is eco-friendly and resolves audit burdens. We would like to take a moment to reflect on the past five years to see our business changes.
Before Chemishield was formed, our managing director witnessed a near fatal accident when a laboratory technician nearly had some chemicals badly react in their face. From this dangerous incident, the idea came to Kevin Walsh. He thought of a solution that would prevent incompatible chemicals mixing again and change the way in which sites and facilities dispose of waste. With his extensive knowledge in this area, he formulated a plan from which the Chemishield company was born in 2017. Starting Chemishield five years ago was only the tip of the iceberg and we have since set our sights on the global arena. Our custom built software is the now preferred inhouse waste management software of our multinational customers. We believe that our intuitive, reliable and safe software should be in every laboratory, site and facility worldwide. This includes all healthcare, commercial industrial, biological and pharmaceutical waste management.
The Chemishield brand has been continually developed to deliver best in class for waste management excellence. Initially Chemishield was developed with the Life Sciences industry in mind. However it has since transcended into industries who need a cost effective system to segregate their waste and require track and trace for all waste disposals. This move has opened Chemishield up to new markets and industries worldwide. As a result, we updated our brand image in 2020 with our iconic new logo to accurately reflect our strong service offering.
Chemishield CTO Niall Cusack has been responsible for the continual development of the software. Joining us over three years ago, Niall leads the Chemishield IT team where they add more value through innovative features to further enhance the customer experience. The customer path is clear and easy to follow and we pride ourselves on its simplicity of use. Furthermore, as the technology begins to integrate AI/ML features it can also provide more in depth comprehensive analytics and forecasting for our users. This sets our software apart from others and encapsulates a premium experience. We envision great new features coming soon. Watch this space.

In these times of great environmental concerns, we pride ourselves on the fact that our software is better for the planet and is a more sustainable option for all industries. To date, Chemishield has safely disposed of hazardous chemical waste in a safe, compliant and green manner.
