9 November 2017, Greenville, SC – We are excited to announce the business anniversary of New Life Chemical & Equipment, Inc.! November 3rd, 1997 was Day #1 for New Life employees and at that time, there were only 4 employees, the original partners. This November 2017 will mark Day #7,305 for New Life, representing our 20th year, and we now have 36 full-time employees. We are proud to continue leading the surplus chemical market with our redistribution efforts that give new life to chemicals that would otherwise require disposal at additional costs. We have helped the largest chemical manufacturers in the world solve their surplus and off-grade chemical problems at significant cost savings and in an environmentally responsible manner.
From the beginning, we have operated our business on Christian principles, including a tithe and offering of our profits to charity and ministry work and beginning each work week with the first-fruits of our time given for a company-wide devotion. Just a few years ago, we changed our corporate mission statement from a lengthy paragraph to the simple statement: “Do It God’s Way.” This is an actionable statement of our direction and it guides our decisions, requiring unity among our partners after prayerful discernment for guidance from the Lord.
The past 20 years have been a blessing to New Life Chemical and we have dedicated our business towards being a blessing to others. Our company verse, 2 Corinthians 5:17 describes that in Christ we are all new creatures, “old things are passed away and behold all things have become new.” Using a play on words, we transform surplus chemicals that might otherwise require disposal at an additional cost and potential harm to our environment into usable chemicals for another end user, giving them new life.
We appreciate the help, support, and prayers of our ministry partners, missionaries, customers and suppliers over the past 20 years.
