Leveraging the power for our differences

Jim O'Brien

"When people think differently because of whatever varied life experiences they've had, everyone works together in new ways, creating processes and solving problems that wouldn't be possible if every employee were the same." – Jim O'Brien, Chairman and CEO

As a global specialty chemical company, our growth will continue to be fueled by countries around the world. We have a significant presence in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, the United States and many others.
