Flipping a coin to find a chemical distributor might bring up George S. Coyne Chemical. The company distributes industrial chemicals (for pharmaceuticals, food, and cosmetics), consumer products (pool chemicals, de-icing chemicals, solar salt), and metal finishing and plating chemicals, primarily in the northeastern US. Coyne Chemical also provides related valued-added services, such as warehousing, custom blending and packaging, and environmental consulting. It operates four locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The company was formed in 1868 by George Coyne and is operated by the founder's descendants.
