Ask yourselves: “What does my company need and want from a company that provides chemical process sampling equipment? ”




  • One that has a wealth of expertise?  

  • One with over twenty years of experience?    

  • One that is personable and professional?    

  • One that is thorough? 


…….and one that never take shortcuts where a company’s chemical process sampling equipment requirements are concerned?


If you’ve answered a resounding YES to the above, please contact us. Oh, and if you’ve answered NO, please contact us.


 “ I formed Derwent James Ltd in 2009. I already had over a dozen years of experience within this particular industry and felt that many companies required a more bespoke, personal touch when it came to on-site sampling safety solutions.


We are based right in the heart of the country, in Derby – close to the M1 and the river Derwent, and with an excellent rail network and international airport on our doorstep – so Derwent James Ltd are perfectly placed to offer the sampling safety solutions that your company needs, wants, and deserves.


We have always ensured that we work alongside companies that provide market-leading sampling safety equipment, too. Since 2009, we have been the exclusive UK representatives for Dovianus BV (the Netherlands based manufacturer of Dopak closed vent sampling systems). Derwent James Ltd can back this up with ensuring your company gets world class safety equipment, too.


We feel that it’s good for you to know that at Derwent James Ltd we can call on not just our expertise, but also the vast knowledge and experience of our partner companies too, to ensure that the sampling products you select are the right ones for your application.


Let Derwent James Ltd provide outstanding sampling equipment, consultancy and expertise for your company.
