Still focused on your business

In 2020 Univar Environmental Sciences was acquired by AEA Investors, and we became Veseris — an independent company 100% committed to serving environmental science customers with greater agility and a stronger sense of purpose.

And with industry-leading digital services like PestWeb, ProTraining, and Inventory Manager, we’re making it easy to do business with Veseris — and empowering managers to do more with their businesses every day.

Most importantly, our 400 employees and 40+ years of history have proven to generations of professionals that Veseris will never stop working to create positive impact for our customers.
