Brainerd Chemical Top 100 Distributor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. LONDON and NEW YORK, May 1, 2023 – Brainerd Chemical Company is proud to announce again being recognized as a Top 100 Chemical Distributor in the 14th annual ranking by ICIS Chemical Business.

Brainerd rose again coming in at number 64 in North America and 205 in the global rankings.

“We are so very proud of our team. Climbing the ICIS Top 100 Distributor rankings is a challenge that every Brainerd employee takes to heart and our ranking growth proves the point.”

Brian Miller | President, Brainerd Chemical Company

This recognition comes as Brainerd Chemical Company marks its 64-year evolution from a tiny local operation to a top global chemical supplier serving thousands of customers through 6 facilities and a hybrid distribution network.

“Chemical distributors are evolving quickly to serve growing and ever-more complex needs of both suppliers and customers. Last year, they successfully navigated huge supply chain challenges stemming from the Russia-Ukraine war, energy volatility and lingering effects from the pandemic,” said Joseph Chang, global editor of ICIS Chemical Business. “This year, distributors are sharpening their focus on helping customers achieve sustainability and net zero carbon emissions goals. This includes not only working with suppliers to offer more products with lower carbon footprints and bio-based and recycled content but also providing greater transparency on these key sustainability aspects.”
