Do you know why Brenntag North America is a top chemical and ingredient solutions distributor in the United States? Let us tell you!

Distribution is only one facet of our business

Sure, we have an exceptional distribution model with more than 190 distribution locations across the United States and Canada, but we also offer over 10,000 products, a world-class supplier base, and innovative technical solutions capable of exceeding your expectations.

Brenntag North America offers one-stop-shop solutions to around 40,000 customers. This means customers know they are going to get everything they need in a United States chemical company from Brenntag North America, and it’s why more distributors around the country and the world are looking to work with Brenntag.

Customers choose us for our value-added services, and you won’t get them from other chemical distributors in the United States. Services include just-in-time delivery, product mixing, formulation, custom packaging, and inventory management.

Perhaps it’s our commitment to ConnectingChemistry, building relationships among customers and chemical suppliers in the United States. At Brenntag North America, we believe being the leading chemical and ingredient distributor in the United States is a serious responsibility. Part of the way we honor that responsibility is by working to make a connection with every chemical and ingredient supplier we work with, so we know they understand how to use our products to service their customers.

Our commitment is to help every supplier deliver the right product, package, and quantity on time, at the right price, every time.

Part of our success may come from our commitment to a better way of life. We’re more than just a bulk chemical and ingredient distributor. We care about providing innovative solutions to change the world.

That’s why we provide the means to purify drinking water, compound medicines to treat a wide variety of health conditions, generate sustainable, healthier food options, and use cleaner fuel that’s better for the environment. We know chemicals and ingredients used correctly can be one of the most beneficial types of technology the world can benefit from, and that’s why we do what we do.

While we love to bring the beneficial effects of our products to a multitude of people as a leading bulk chemical and ingredient distributor in the United States, we know our clients have businesses of their own to worry about. That’s why Brenntag North America offers industrial and specialty raw materials structured to boost your business as chemical and ingredient supplier in the United States. When you succeed, we succeed. In service of this goal, we offer competitive prices, comprehensive technical support, high-quality products, on-time delivery, modern facilities, and unforgiving quality assurance.

Brenntag's Core Values

Our Values

Brenntag’s success is founded on our company’s unwavering commitment to our core values. All of our business activities and our relationships with our business partners are defined by the six values which set us apart from our competitors and help us deliver the best performance possible to our partners.

At Brenntag, safety always comes first. Striving for zero accidents and incidents worldwide, we aim to set industry standards for safety measures. Brenntag employees are encouraged to be leaders in their respective roles who take accountability for their work and decisions. Our employees take ownership of their work, and as such bring a high level of engagement and involvement to their business relationships.

We are committed to excellence in every aspect of our business to remain on top. To that end, we conduct all matters with the utmost degree of integrity and responsibility. We would not be the world’s leading chemical distributor if we did not make a meaningful impact to our business partners, and as such, we strive to create the highest possible value for our partners, regardless of the task at hand.

When we think of our business, we need to ask ourselves two questions: How can we help our business partners to succeed – today and in the future? What is the benefit for our partners working with us? Our strap line “ConnectingChemistry” is the ultimate answer to both of these questions.

Brenntag strives to be the industry’s most effective and preferred channel partner. Our industry and customer-focused approach to chemical distribution builds on connecting customers and suppliers in a winning partnership. Always being committed to our partners’ success, we serve as their extension, sharing our intelligence on markets, industries and applications. We support them in reacting flexibly to ever-changing market conditions and help them focus on their core business by managing their complexity. We are the only chemical distributor which complements a broad global network with outstanding local execution. Brenntag is there for its partners – anytime, anywhere.

Brenntag is truly a “people’s business”. Everything we achieve as a business is accomplished with and through our employees. They are the connection between our business partners. They connect people and build relationships. We demonstrate that the distribution of chemicals and ingredients is not just a business for us. It is an attitude. And our passion is to be the best partner connecting you as our customers and suppliers in local markets worldwide.

The “ConnectingChemistry” Campaign: Focusing on Employees

“ConnectingChemistry is an integral part of our corporate culture. Therefore, I believe it is really important we put people at the center point of our communication as they are all making these important connections on a daily basis and are the face of Brenntag to the outside world.” - Steve Holland, CEO, Brenntag AG

The “ConnectingChemistry” slogan, reflects Brenntag’s day-to-day business and emphasize Brenntag’s center position in the value chain. Day in, day out, the global Brenntag employees connect customers and suppliers, thus forming a hub for expertise and knowledge in the many different areas of chemical distribution.

Our employees are drawing the picture the world has of Brenntag. And who could tell the story of Brenntag better than they themselves can?
