Arizona Chemical Celebrates 75th Anniversary

In honor of its 75th anniversary, Arizona Chemical is planning a series of special events to be held throughout the year to recognize the invaluable contributions of its team members. "The success of Arizona Chemical over the past 75 years would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of our outstanding team members," said Gerald Marterer, vice president of Arizona Chemical. "Whether our employees have been working for Arizona Chemical for one year or for 40 years, they have each played an important part in the company's success." The company, which is headquartered in Jacksonville, FL, was originally formed in 1930 as a joint venture between International Paper and American Cyanamid to mine salt cake in Camp Verde, AZ. After the mine was closed in 1936, the company began processing tall oil and turpentine, which are co-products of the papermaking process. Arizona Chemical eventually opened plants in Panama City, FL, and Springhill, LA, beginning the company's aggressive global growth strategy that led to the successful operation of 12 manufacturing locations throughout the United States and Europe. Today, Arizona Chemical products, including fatty acids, rosins and terpenes, are used to make fragrances, adhesives, household cleaners, soaps, inks, paints, rubber products, hydraulic fluids, roofing material, and much more.
