The Chemical Distribution Network is a $450 million distributor-owned organization designed position distributors to better service customers in the rapidly changing chemical distribution industry and evolving e-commerce market.

CDN evolved out of a group called ChemSource, which was comprised of Illinois-based chemical distributors. ChemSource came together to take advantage of the economies and increased marketing power being part of a group affords.

Larry Hayes, the Chairman of CDN, was also Chairman of ChemSource. The success of ChemSource led the group to expand beyond the Midwest.  The Chemical Distribution Network had its first organizational meeting in June of 2000.

The network assists its independent distributor members to effectively improve customer service.  Group marketing programs also help individual members compete in what has become a consolidating, competitive industry.

CDN is rapidly expanding and adding new members and new distribution points.  While CDN members uses an e-commerce to connect with customers and suppliers electronically, all CDN members are established companies with “bricks and mortar” distribution facilities.  They are not “dot coms.”

CDN's Marlborough, MA headquarters functions as a central office, providing a platform for shared investment in technology and coordination of the network activities and programs. CDN's management team includes Ed Salvesen, Vice President, and a Board of Managing Members.
