Surfachem is delighted to announce that Matthew Gaskell has joined the team as the new Head of Pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals.

John Heywood, who previously filled this role, has passed on his responsibilities in the pharmaceutical industry to focus on Home, Industrial and Institutional.

As a part of our purpose to Deliver Chemistry for a Better Life, Surfachem is providing a specialist service to the pharmaceutical industry.

“Matt’s expertise in the field will help to bring our customers and suppliers the best service possible with a firm focus and commitment to building a solid partnership and a bright future.” – Greg Barton

"I’ve spent a lifetime (25 years so far) working in speciality chemical distribution including coatings, inks and plastics sectors and in the late 2000s moved towards the more consumer driven and innovative personal care, cleaning and pharmaceutical sectors, starting a new business unit for a previous employer, and building a supplier portfolio and product range to meet the requirements of those niches.

I aim to replicate the successes of Surfachem’s Personal Care and HI&I teams by bringing market focus and attention to the Pharma and Nutraceutical industries within the wider 2M portfolio.

I’m pleased to be joining the great team at Surfachem and rejoining the 2M family." – Matt Gaskell

Matthew now acts as the new point of contact for all things Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical and is looking forward to making himself known across the industry as part of the Surfachem Group.
