Our Company

Monson has become the preferred link connecting manufacturers and purchasers of chemical products as well as servicing their logistical needs throughout our geography. We have been a significant presence for more than 35 years, continuously expanding our capabilities and our technical expertise. Today, along with our broad spectrum of high-quality products, we’re proud to offer a level of professional service you won’t find anywhere else. We believe in building strong customer relationships by helping you solve your problems, understanding your goals, anticipating your needs and making our resources your resources.

Our original company, Monson Chemicals, was founded in 1965. In the late eighties and early nineties we acquired Lovezzola-Ward Company and Washburn-Linder & Company, both specialty chemical distributors. In 1996 the purchase of the Industrial Division of W.H. Shurtleff in Portland, ME further broaden our capabilities with ice-melting and inorganic chemical products. Then in 2004 we purchased the Contractor Division of Shurtleff. Shurtleff and Washurn-Linder can each trace their roots back to the 1800’s! Lenape Industries, acquired in 2006, offers specialty chemicals in plastics market. Our newest addition, Colonial Specialties, with a focus in Lubricants & Metal Working Fluids was purchased in 2015.

While we’re proud of our diverse heritage, our eyes are on the future. At Monson it is our goal to continue servicing you as the leading chemical distributor.
