3 Decades of Excellence

About GSD ChemGSD Chem, Inc. was founded more than 30 years ago as Curtis/GlenChem Corp. by two individuals with a vision for developing and delivering outstanding cleaning products with excellent service and attention to customer needs.

For three decades, the company succeeded in its mission, earning a reputation for quality and performance.  It was this reputation that attracted the current owners, who purchased the company in 2014. They recognized the value and long-term potential of the technology and products — from the initial formulations to the customer-driven innovations — and set out to spread the word to a wider commercial audience.

Changing the name from Curtis/GlenChem to GSD Chem, Inc., the rebranded company is dedicated to the core values of speed, intelligence and loyal commitment.
