ACD Membership

ACD provides top-tier EHS&S , regulatory compliance assistance, education for your entire staff from sales to C-level, but most importantly, ACD hosts a group of like-minded industry leaders who benefit from shared knowledge and business exchanges. Without being tongue in cheek, a home base, because you’re with a group that— unlike the rest of the world— understands what it takes to run a chemical facility.

Membership for the Alliance is open to companies that purchase for resale and/or handle chemical and essential ingredients. This includes, but is not limited to, companies that:

  • Take title to and resell chemicals and/or essential ingredients;
  • Blend, recycle, sample, transport, or warehouse/store these products on behalf of others;
  • Actively facilitate the sale of these products as agents, traders, or related services for producers or distribution firms in this industry.

Join this group of industry leaders
