SPSE overview

We work with all the major process industry sectors including chemicals and petrochemicals, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, life sciences, food, power and many more. Not sure what a process industry is?  It is an industry that is concerned with the processing of bulk resources or materials and turning them into other products. Think about how your toothpaste or pain relief medication is made.  It also involves managing resources like power, wastewater and carbon capture.

SPSE’s software products and services help our customers improve their processes and product designs, enhance their operations, and be more efficient and effective during the R&D phase.
