We are passionate about the possibilities created through good chemistry. We believe chemistry is about innovative, differentiated science – and also about the way people come together to solve problems. From the speed at which a call or an email is returned to the lengths we go to develop solutions that solve a specific customer need, good chemistry is what makes Ashland different and what makes us better. That’s why Ashland is one of the world’s leading specialty chemical companies.
