Integra Chemical Company started business in the northwest in 1983 as a supplier of small-pack compounding chemicals for pharmacies. We expanded our product line to include laboratory chemicals and manufactured titrating, testing and custom solutions and were soon serving not just pharmacies, but businesses, government laboratories and educational institutions nation-wide.
In the early 2000s, Integra introduced Vita-D-Chlor, an environmentally friendly dechlorination chemical derived from Vitamin C chemistry. As its popularity grew, we also began supplying equipment for use with Vita-D-Chlor, primarily for hydrant flushing and water main installations and maintenance.
In 2019, after careful evaluation, Integra decided to exit the general chemical business and focus solely on dechlorination, which had become our core business. We expected this transition to take several years. However, this process has been greatly accelerated by the economic impacts of the pandemic and we now expect to be fully out of the general chemical business by the end of 2022.
In our new chapter, we stay dedicated to what has served us well these past forty years: supplying quality products that meet our customers' needs, maintaining a healthy inventory so that we can ship promptly, and providing easy and knowledgeable customer service. As we navigate the new realities of the world, we look forward to continuing to grow and build our company in the waterworks and dechlorination markets.
