Philip Harris

Philip Harris is one of 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, has begun celebrating its 200th year of business!

The anniversary celebrations began at the Association for Science Education (ASE) annual conference where some original products from the 19th century where displayed alongside the current range.

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.
