About Redox

Redox has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the leading chemical and ingredients distributors in the world.

Roland was already a highly successful businessman when he arrived in Australia, however it was through his hard work and persistence that the company is the success it is today. Starting Redox in 1965, he utilised his extensive contacts personal relationships across Eastern Europe to establish a flourishing business bridging continents at a time when the tyranny of distance made communication difficult.

An ability to speak many languages allowed him to build his network and unearthing new and exciting suppliers around the world. Delivering affordable, quality products until then unknown to customers who of course came to appreciate his dedication to old fashioned service.

Well known throughout the chemical world as a hard worker, relentless in his pursuit of the best options for both customer and supplier, he had a keen sense for finding opportunities where others would have given up long ago.

Retiring in 2015 after fifty years at the helm of Redox and passing away in 2017, the company culture is indelibly stamped with his ethos.
