ChemSpec Ltd. has reached full membership status within the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), successfully passing the organization’s NACD Responsible Distribution verification for the current three-year cycle.
Responsible Distribution is a third-party verified environmental health, safety and security program, which allows members to demonstrate their commitment to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation and disposal.
“Responsible Distribution is critical to the chemical distribution industry’s ability to safely deliver more than 30 million tons of product every year,” said NACD president & CEO Eric Byer. “Through their successful verification, ChemSpec and its senior leadership have committed to the continuous improvement in the chemical distribution industry’s responsible management and handling of chemicals that ensures NACD members effectively support the industries America relies on most, like agriculture, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing, equipment and many more.”
“This certification is something we’ve worked very hard on obtaining and we are extremely happy to earn it,” added ChemSpec president Dave Moreland. “Our quality & regulatory department manager Brendan Lowery and his team have put tremendous time into obtaining this verification, we’re proud of them. I believe this shows ChemSpec, like our parent company Safic-Alcan, is committed to environmental stewardship, overall sustainability and continual improvement to our processes and procedures.”
