CHICAGO -- CHEMCENTRAL Corp. has implemented a new operating strategy designed to expand and enhance the company's customer and market focus. Termed "Regionalization," the new strategy centralizes support functions in regional business centers while retaining sales and operations at its many distribution sites throughout the country.

The program will enhance customers' and suppliers' access to the company and improve local presence while eliminating the multiple and sometimes confusing points of contact for billing and administrative transactions. The new operating structure will be fully implemented by the end of 2002.
