Stratech Scientific began in 1983 with a vision to achieve the impossible. From the ‘humble’ beginnings of laboratory work, Sue Hallett’s career in science moved to procurement. Her ability to source rare biological products developed her mindset of making things happen. With a dream of making the impossible possible for the scientific community and a small loan from her father, Stratech was born.
