Our History

Philip Harris is the UK's leading supplier of science equipment and resources for schools, colleges, laboratories and universities. We can trace our origins back to 1817 when Birmingham-born chemist Philip Harris began expanding his business to offer a more comprehensive range of science equipment alongside chemistry, focusing on the growing demand in schools and colleges.

Philip Harris still retains the values of our founder, so you can trust us to supply science resources of the highest quality, with many products redesigned and improved to meet the latest industry standards.

Our Technical Team are as passionate about Science as you are and want to help you make the most of the resources you purchase from us. With this in mind, we have developed our Technical Support Library.
