American Chemistry Council
expands, diversifies membership
Jun 15, 2010 2:21 PM
The American Chemistry Council (ACC) board of directors at its annual meeting approved the membership of five companies and the status of six others as Responsible Care Partner companies.
Growth of ACC membership is a direct result of an initiative created to improve member services, expand the Responsible Care community, and increase industry engagement in the political process. The initiative provides incentives for smaller companies to join ACC by offering three years of dues relief; pre-membership readiness assessments; and mentoring, benchmarking, and regional support to aid in the implementation of Responsible Care. During this time companies are provided the full benefits of ACC membership.
The companies represent diversity in the chemical manufacturing sector, producing products ranging from petrochemicals and thermoplastic resins to engineering fibers, peroxides, persulfates, chlor-alkalis, and bioengineered polymers.
The new Responsible Care Partner companies cover fleet management and third-party logistics as well as bulk transportation. Those approved include:
•CH Robinson Worldwide of Chicago IL
•Expeditors International of Edison NJ
•Grupo Transmerquim SA of San Jose, Costa Rica
•Martin Transport Inc of Kilgore TX
•Tankstar USA of Milwaukee WI
•Transportation Consultants Inc of Harahan LA.
With these additions, ACC has added 10 new members and seven Responsible Care Partners to its rosters since the beginning of the year, bringing current membership in each category to 143 companies and 80 companies, respectively.
