Customer Focused, “Go To” Distributor

U.S. Chemicals recognises that its partners are looking for more and that in order to set itself apart the company must deliver beyond the basics.


Why is culture important at U.S. Chemicals?

Creating Customer Success® is more than a statement that we hail here at U.S. Chemicals as we work with customers to supply specialty chemicals across North America. It is a deep belief woven into the fabric of our company culture. It’s how we work, how we treat customers, and how we treat each other.

When U.S. Chemicals was founded in 1960 by Howard T. Von Oehsen, he always said, "if our customers are not successful, then we are not successful ... our customers' success is directly related to our success." His business philosophy, still in effect today, is to offer optimal solutions to customers with the highest quality standards.

“Our success is directly related to our customer’s success. If our customers are not successful, we cannot be successful.”
