Apexical Tour

Words that might be used to describe Apexical, Inc. are innovation and customer focus. The company was founded in 1900 as Apex Chemical Corporation in Brooklyn, NY producing lactic acid using a unique synthesis process. Growth from new opportunities prompted the move of the company to Elizabeth, NJ in 1916. These included a wide range of chemical specialties, including flame retardants, finishing agents, and dyeing auxiliaries for the paper, leather, and textile industries.

A continued commitment to customer focus led to further growth beginning with the establishment of a warehouse in Spartanburg, SC in 1992 to better serve the North American textile market. Expansion of the Spartanburg physical plant enabled the relocation of the Apex Chemical Corporation in 1994, including all production, manufacturing, research and development activities.

The commitment to customer success and innovation has resulted in Apex Chemical Corporation’s longevity and further growth. This is evidenced by the completion in 2003 of a major 3500 sq.ft. laboratory expansion that added to Apex Chemical Corporation’s capability in innovative product development and responsive commitment to serving customer needs. Most recently, plant and warehouse expansion projects added 12,000 sq.ft. to the physical plant in 2005 along with an emergency power generator to enable continuity of operations in electrical outages. A new 10,000 gallon reactor put into this new space was commissioned in 2006. Additionally bulk storage capacity for raw materials was put in place and a new 300 hp steam boiler was installed.

A major reason for the growth of Apexical is that over the years the company has anticipated and responded to its customers’ needs by improving on its ability to develop custom products to meet specific applications. All Apexical customers receive close, personal attention regardless of the size of their orders. Our ISO 9001-2008 QMS quality system assures prompt, reliable delivery from an unusual, diverse product line that contains specialty items unobtainable from any other source.

In 2010, Apexical acquired the North American operations of CHT R. Beitlich further expanding its product portfolio.
