As a multi-generation, family owned and run operation of 25+ years in the making, sustainability is the very core of our business.
The move toward sustainability is not just about staying in business so we can pass a birthright to the next generation, it also incorporates the powerful idea of leaving our planet a little better than we found it by consciously working to reduce negative human and environmental impact thru precision management of our resources.
On a grand scale this means making thoughtful choices about the alliances we make with vendors and producers with respect to their best practices, and on a small scale this brings our attention to maximizing freight on each order to reduce our carbon footprint.
The scope of our business includes both serving the end user/pharmaceutical customer as well as creating a marketplace for our streams, co-products and recycled materials. Thus creating a closed – loop system of sales and maximizing resources with respect to the old adage “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
Throughout the past 25+ years, Transchem has reused and recycled millions of pounds of chemicals that were destined for landfills and incinerators. By doing so we do our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Additionally, for nearly a decade, we have supported the Chemical Educational Foundation, both financially and through employee volunteerism in the You Be The Chemist Challenge®
We are leading the way among our chemical distributor peers as our outreach efforts encourage students and educators to make STEM education a priority, guaranteeing that we protect the future of our industry’s greatest natural resource – the human workforce – ensuring that todays youth are equipped to be tomorrow’s chemists, R&D researchers, QA managers…and the list goes on. At Transchem, Inc we believe a safer, more sustainable, better tomorrow, starts today.
