Companies Recognize Value of EHS&S Program Like ChemStewards®

WASHINGTON, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) today welcomed 12 new members, including manufacturers and service providers for the specialty chemical industry, who are looking to utilize SOCMA's programs to improve their business and protect the community and environment in which they live. The new members were approved by SOCMA's Board of Governors during an April 9, 2013, meeting in Washington, D.C.

"We are pleased to welcome this outstanding group of companies to SOCMA," said President and CEO Lawrence D. Sloan. "We not only have a wealth of products and services to offer these new members, but a well-trained staff dedicated to helping them succeed in all areas that impact their business, from advocacy to regulatory support to networking and other services."

"With an increased focus on environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S), many of our new members are particularly interested in SOCMA's ChemStewards® program," Sloan said. "For example, MarChem was looking for a comprehensive way to coordinate EHS&S functions across all four of its manufacturing facilities, and Fluoro-Seal, Piramal Critical Care, Synray, Norquay and Materia all recognized the benefits of being part of a program that helps them optimize their performance, save money and enhance their roles as good corporate citizens."
