About Us

An inspired name for an inspired future

Our name is inspired by Prometheus, a clever Titan in Greek mythology who gave fire to the mortals. He was seen as the ultimate enabler of civilization by providing this revolutionary advance of fire — as well as the arts and sciences — and helping humanity survive and excel.

We believe the nanoscience field is bringing significant change to many industries today — with even greater potential in the future. Our full-scale nanoparticle manufacturing technology and nanotechnology experts are key to enabling increased performance and cost effectiveness for our customers in their end markets and applications. We work as torchbearers, advancing the science and your success.

Our Values

Our values support our vision, shape our culture and reflect the essence of Promethean Particles. These values help in our decision-making and the way we act, underpinning our relentless commitment to deliver on our promises.


As a manufacturer of specialty chemicals, safety is a core value. Priorities can change, but safety is a deeply held belief. It is at the core of every aspect of our operations. We commit to a workplace where our employees and their families can count on us to return their loved ones free from injury or harm. We also develop products with the goal of improving safety and handling for our customers.


Being an ethical company, employer, supplier and neighbour almost goes without saying, but integrity goes further. At Promethean Particles, integrity is about doing what we say we will, when we say we will — every time. It is about being counted on, being reliable, being transparent and honest, and delivering on the set of promises we make to our various stakeholders every day.


We believe in diversity and the power of teamwork — internally and externally — to achieve higher outcomes. Through collaboration within our team, we seek different and diverse viewpoints, perspectives, experiences, knowledge and culture. We collaborate with our customers, organizations and research efforts to bring new ideas and new products to the world.


Innovation is our lifeblood. It’s why we get up in the morning (or wake up in the middle of the night with a new solution). It is the pursuit of novel ideas, products, services and methods to create value for Promethean, our customers and investors. The added value from innovation moves us past invention to a demonstrable positive change to our business and the industries we serve.


We strive for excellence in everything we do and are driven by a relentless approach to continuous improvement. We encourage ideas that challenge the status quo, never being satisfied that the current answer is enough. We maintain a belief that we can always be better, that a process can be improved, and that there is always a more effective way.


We inspire our employees to be creative, to go fast and to take risks. We fail fast, learn from our endeavours and move quickly to the next potential winning idea. Our agility allows us to efficiently and effectively design, develop and deliver products to our customers.
