We are a buyer of surplus, orphaned, over-aged and off-specification chemicals for beneficial re-use in our own production or for resale to the secondary market. We are located in Greenville, SC–but we work globally, buying and shipping in over 20 countries internationally. We are able to quickly respond with reasonable offers for the immediate relief of your inventory. We’re a great ecological and economical solution alternative to disposal.

We also distribute certain prime products under our own New Life brand, which is becoming an expanding part of our business. By buying in bulk and selling in repackaged containers, we can pass along cost savings to smaller buyers. New Life is a manufacturer of generic laundry detergents, dish detergents and fabric softeners which are sold wholesale in bulk tank trucks or IBC containers to private label distributors.  We are a member of the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance and participate in their Chemistry Council.  See below for our current inventory and FAQ’s.
