Murphy Chemicals (E.A.) Ltd. was established in 1958 and is the oldest agrochemical distribution company in the country. MCEA was sold to one of the leading chemical manufacturing companies at the time, Rhone–Poulenc.
MCEAL business continued to be operated independently even after acquisition by Rhone–Poulenc. Thereafter, when Rhone–Poulenc was later acquired worldwide by May and Baker including its operations in Kenya, its new buyers disposed it off in 1991 to the current shareholders. Over the years the company has developed a brand name with the farmers particularly in small packs and quality products.

The company has one of the largest distribution networks in the country comprising 110 main distributors (MDs) and 600 stockists located in main agricultural areas of the country and meeting the diverse needs of the farmer .The company has well trained technical staff. In order to reach every farmer, the packaging of our products is done in such a manner that it meets the needs of the large scale farmer as well as the small scale farmer with product pack sizes ranging from 200 lt. drums to 28ml bottles.
