“ChemSpec is excited to be partnering with such a tremendously respected company such as Dow. We feel that this relationship will enable us to move further into the inks and coatings manufacturing sectors, where we already have a growing presence with parts of our product portfolio.”

“We are confident that we can grow DOW’s nitrocellulose-oriented business by leveraging our already-existing relationships domestically, and also internationally with the support of our parent SAFIC-ALCAN, to develop a greater understanding of these products.“


“Additionally, ChemSpec’s responsibility as DOW’s distributor is to widen the supply channel for small to medium sized manufacturing companies in that we will be holding stock for both the large user and also the small skid to drum customer.
