The chemistry is right

As a Chemical Technician, you are responsible for the industrial production of chemical products and take an active part in process development for these products. You regulate, manage and monitor the production process with the assistance of instrumentation and industrial process and control techniques, and assess product quality using both chemical and physical methods. You are also responsible for assembling, cleaning and maintaining devices and equipment.
