About Brainerd Chemical

Since 1959, Brainerd Chemical has grown from a local supplier into a major regional provider and distributor of chemicals for research facilities, industrial plants and agricultural operations. With over 3,000 customers in 40 states, our priorities of integrity, safety and commitment to customers have and will always be the primary focus of our operations.

Brainerd Chemical has become an industry leader in the prestigious Top 100 U.S. Chemical Distributors by offering a specialized list of chemical products, delivered in company trucks by highly qualified professional drivers. We have consistently over-served our customers by working to exceed expectations by providing prompt and accurate services, including rail terminaling, large-scale packaging, bulk storage, bulk blending, contract packaging and logistic facilitating for larger organizations. High-purity research and medical-use chemicals are cornerstones of our product line. However, we also provide chemicals for Oil & Gas, Food Processing, Water Treatment, Cosmetics, and many other industries.

Our track record proves that safety, government compliance, and problem solving year after year are the actions backing up our promise of excellent and knowledgeable service. We are very proud of our 80+ member team who are carefully selected to continue representing our company with integrity, dedication, technical expertise and specialized knowledge needed to work with such a wide variety of chemicals.

Our company trucks and drivers deliver shipments throughout our three regions and are diligently trained for the handling and off-loading of all types of chemicals. We move over 15 million pounds of products per month by rail, truck and common carrier. Our fleet of company-owned trucks travel throughout 10 states to deliver our regional shipments every week. Because Brainerd has 3,500-feet of rail spur and large bulk storage capacity at our four facilities, we are equipped to support distribution and production for organizations of all sizes.

Our products include difficult-to-handle products such as: 99% and 65% Nitric Acid, 70% and 50% Hydrofluoric Acid, Formaldehyde, Hydrochloric Acid, Sulfuric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Ferric Chloride Solutions, Sodium Hypochlorite, and many Solvents. We are the largest producer of 50% Citric Acid and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol in Oklahoma. We are the only company drumming 99% Nitric Acid in The United States.

In Tulsa, Brainerd Chemical is located on 10 acres with five buildings, specifically designed for our packaging operations. This facility is located in a Free Enterprise Zone, which gives us the capability to import chemicals directly to this location with customs clearing on-site. In Dunn, North Carolina, Brainerd has 4 acres with a 90,000-square-foot building used primarily for packaging, bulk storage and distribution on the East Coast. Brainerd’s largest facility is located just outside of Oklahoma City on a 31 acres site. This facility serves as a rail-to-bulk storage, packaging and distribution center for Brainerd Chemical to distribute chemicals to its corporate and industrial customers in the Central United States.

As our operations continue to expand to serve valued customers, Brainerd remains committed to providing the highest quality in both chemicals and service. It is the goal of Brainerd Chemical Company to promote the field of chemistry through the tireless efforts of its employees, haloed by chemical stewardship. Our family tradition of service and stewardship, even in an ever changing business market, are our core values and have kept us independent and financially vibrant.
