About Us

Since 1946, Progress Chemical has been a family owned business.

We understand our role in the marketplace as one of commitment to our customers. By providing customers with more than is expected, we have gained their trust and built our reputation. We have developed each product to suit the specific needs of our customers. We realize that each customer's situation is different, requiring that we look at every detail before recommending a product or process.

We can run parts in our in-house test lab or we can promptly send you product samples for field testing. When the need arises, we can readily supply custom blended products. At your request, our sales representatives can be present during the introduction of our product into your process. Whether you purchase one of our many standard products or one specifically formulated for your operation, you can expect service second to none.

Designed for ultimate flexibility!

Our manufacturing facility is set up to efficiently produce small or large quantities of highly specialized materials.

Necessity has driven us to provide our customers with products especially designed to do a specific operation; products that are not only formulated to work in that process, but also designed to take the entire operation into consideration. Because we produce and sell only compounds, we have gained valuable experience working with all makes and models of equipment, and can give objective advice on all your equipment and media needs.
