Background to The Tennant Group

Tennants, pioneers in the chemical industry, had their origins in Glasgow as far back as 1797, when the first products produced by the founder Charles Tennant were Chlor alkalies needed at that time to speed the Bleaching of Textiles.

During the founder’s life the seeds of the Tennant Group of Companies were sown.  A branch office was opened in Dublin as early as 1810 and has continued to trade in Eire since that date.

There has of course been continual change and evolution, but the basic pattern has not altered.  Our wide range of chemicals, raw materials and building materials are carefully chosen and continually reviewed to meet the ever changing needs of industry.  Principals represented include several national and multinational companies.

Additionally, to enable Tennants to meet the trend towards the increased globalisation of businesses we have become partners in Penta, a major chemical distributor alliance based in Europe. This enables us to offer best in class solutions for suppliers and customers throughout mainland Europe, with links to other chemical alliances worldwide.
