On February 6, 1929, Hydrite started as a supplier to the tanning industry in Milwaukee, WI.
The evolution from a chemical distributor to a chemical producer was a major turning point for the success of the company. Today, Hydrite is one of North America's largest independent distributors and manufacturers of specialty and industrial chemicals.
Hydrite is releasing a new company video which is a continuation of Richard Honkamp's book, "Success Has Been Fun," and highlights the history of the company.
"Thanks to everyone who has made the past 90 years so successful. We would especially like to thank all our employees, customers, and suppliers who play such a crucial role in the success of the company and allowed us to reach this milestone," CEO Paul Honkamp said. "We are looking forward to the years to come."
