Accelrys acquires EH&S compliance provider ChemSW

San Diego, CA – Scientific innovation lifecycle management software provider Accelrys has acquired ChemSW, an environmental health & safety compliance (EH&S) solutions provider.

Accelrys says the acquisition will enable it to provide solutions for managing and tracking the source, use and disposal of chemicals along the entire lab-to-plant value chain.

ChemSW’s EH&S compliance portfolio is designed to eliminate the inconsistencies and errors associated with the disconnected paper-based methods of chemical inventory management often used today.

With the ChemSW acquisition, Accelrys says it will offer customers an automated inventory system for tracking and tracing chemicals including: monitoring and tracking location and quantity specifics; monitoring usage; generating reports and quickly assessing hazard information during an emergency.

“Accelrys is taking a major step forward in delivering solutions that support predictive sustainable innovation; we look forward to welcoming the ChemSW team and integrating their software solutions into our larger platform,” said Accelrys president and CEO Max Carnecchia. “Environmental health and safety is critical for companies across industries that rely on science to innovate – from specialty chemicals and consumer packaged goods to food and beverage, agro-science, biopharmaceuticals, and oil and gas. By adding this solution to our portfolio, we continue to set ourselves apart, providing scientific innovation lifecycle management solutions that close the productivity gap, reduce costs and ultimately speed innovation while ensuring sustainability measures are intensified.”
