ABOUT US

OUR STORY

In April 2019, American Chemical Solutions (ACS) reopened a shuttered chemical manufacturing facility in Muskegon, Michigan. With an experienced team and a collective vision to revitalize the chemical manufacturing site, ACS was launched. We focused our efforts on bringing jobs back to our community, hiring great people with decades of experience in the chemical manufacturing industry. We understood a strong team was necessary to support a broad customer base eager to secure their chemical supply chains.
In just one year, the ACS team achieved the unexpected and re-started the manufacturing facility. Our facility was originally designed to efficiently manufacture specialty chemicals and through our investment to renovate and modernize the site, ACS is now an efficient, reliable value-added source for your external chemical toll manufacturing needs.
