Incorporated in 1968 by Harrison R. Tyler and William P. Simmons, ChemTreat is one of America's most rapidly growing industrial water treatment companies. Continued expansion has allowed ChemTreat to evolve into one of the world's largest providers of water treatment products and services. ChemTreat is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, with manufacturing plants in Ashland, Virginia; Vernon and Fontana, California; Nederland, Texas; Nampa, Idaho; and Eldridge, Iowa. The founding principals established a sound course to promote company growth. Recognizing the need for quality service, they assembled the most experienced field sales and service force in today's water treatment industry. Unlike many water treatment companies, which merely copy products and technology, ChemTreat develops original chemical treatment approaches and innovative service commitments. Service, ChemTreat's primary focus, is supported by the most current technology in our laboratory and research and development facilities in Ashland, Virginia. Our corporate technical staff (with an average of 22 years of experience), another key to our service excellence, provides the highest level of technical support in the industry. ChemTreat employs over 550 experienced field sales engineers. They offer the in-depth knowledge needed to improve the effectiveness of water treatment systems in any industry. A typical ChemTreat field engineer spends his entire career in a single territory, helping cultivate a long-term relationship with the customers. ChemTreat believes that when our customers have a problem, they want a representative who is familiar with their water treatment needs, someone who will provide the attention and care that comes from a long-standing business relationship. Because frequent turnover is not a problem at ChemTreat, it is not a problem for our customers. ChemTreat has grown to become a leader in the water treatment industry and is committed to continued growth. We retain the flexibility of the smaller companies and meet the specialized needs through a rapid and thorough response to our customers in all areas of the business. We have the significant resources of a larger company to ensure superior customer support. ChemTreat continues to grow because we have a simple strategy: provide the best possible service with a long-term view, use the most current technology, and employ the most experienced sales staff. We operate as a subsidiary of Danaher Corporation, one of the best performing Fortune 200 companies. Our proprietary solutions allow our customers to reduce water, chemical, and energy costs, extend asset life, improve process operations, and reduce downtime. We have expertise in a variety of industries, including automotive, beverage, chemical, food, fuel processing, metals, mining, power, pulp and paper, and textile. We also serve commercial and institutional customers, including data centers, district energy providers, universities, government buildings, and hospitals.
