EcoOnline expands and strengthens its comprehensive and easy to use chemical management SaaS solutions by acquiring Chymeia ApS - a Danish-based company providing a next generation software tool for safety data sheet authoring. 

A safety data sheet (SDS) is a legally required document and the main source of information for employers and employees which outlines the hazards of chemicals and the risks they pose to people and the environment, as well as measures to control the risks.

“Safety data sheets authoring is a key part of EcoOnline’s product offering in chemical management, allowing customers who sell, distribute or manufacture chemicals to efficiently produce and update this key safety resource. ALMEGO is an efficient and intuitive authoring solution for safety data sheets; and an attractive add-on to EcoOnline’s chemical management solution. This acquisition confirms our continued commitment and leading expertise in the chemical management market,” says Göran Lindö, CEO at EcoOnline.

“This SaaS product has received exceptional critical acclaim and is supported by a highly competent team. The ALMEGO software will enhance EcoOnline’s already expansive chemical safety offerings and will be published in multiple languages in all markets. This acquisition is especially relevant for customers with international operations,” he adds.

Helping customers to comply with complex legislation

In accordance with the REACH Regulation all manufacturer or producer of hazardous substances must provide an SDS with any hazardous substances or chemicals. And, since the introduction of the Global Harmonizing System (GHS), a new structured, unified and standardized approach was introduced globally to ensure the safe use of chemicals.

ALMEGO is the culmination of more than a decade of experience and offers a high degree of automation supported by intuitive guidance enhancements, a flexible structure, and a modern user interface.
