Chemical Distribution, Then and Now

Chemical Distribution, Then and Now

Chemical distribution is always evolving. For more than 50 years, our organization has supported most of the companies that considered themselves predominately chemical distributors. However, today, our industry and our members are much more diversified. Our members no longer think of themselves solely as chemical distributors. The Alliance for Chemical Distribution (ACD) is made up of proprietary blending specialists, tollers, marketers, warehousers, specialty manufacturers, and more. On average, members in our industry select more than three different business functions to describe their operations.

ACD's 2024 Spring Workshops: Elevating Sustainability, Security, and Standards

As we head toward the presidential election and the end of the current administration, it’s likely that various agencies will be pushing out rules and regulations faster than ever – and with that comes even greater scrutiny on the supply chain and the activities of our members. 

With this in mind, we invite you to come and join us for our 2024 Regulatory and Responsible Distribution Spring Workshops to help prepare for these inevitable changes and ensure your business continues to demonstrate high environmental, health, safety, and security (EHS&S) standards.

In case you haven’t noticed, things look a little different around here. At our 2023 Annual Meeting, we were excited to announce our new name – the Alliance for Chemical Distribution (ACD) – along with the meaning and rationale behind the change. Our colors, our logos, and our imagery have also been updated, and each was strategically designed to support the new brand.
