In the American way, JARCHEM® was founded in 1978 as a one product company, working from one small building in the industrial heartland of Newark, New Jersey. From its humble beginning, JARCHEM® has grown into a multi-million dollar chemical manufacturing and marketing company.
In 1987, JARCHEM® acquired the Specialty Chemical Division of Fallek Chemical. This increased JARCHEM®’s ability to supply products with an agent and distribution system that spans the globe.
