Specialty Chemical Manufacturing Services

The Nelson Brothers Specialty Chemical products are manufactured at a dedicated facility located in Parrish, Alabama. Since its establishment, this facility has been expanded on several occasions, including the recent addition of two new reactors to accommodate growth in volume and expansion of the product portfolio.

Specialty Chemical Services

The Parrish facility consists of multiple reaction vessels which provide a high degree of manufacturing flexibility, economies of scale and a fast response to our customer’s needs. Supporting the manufacturing assets are an on-site blending facility, finished goods packaging and a warehouse facility. The site is serviced by both road and rail access and has ready access to the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico ports for marine transportation.

Nelson Brothers is able to offer our customers a high degree of flexibility with respect to packaging requirements and specialty chemical services. Our onsite blending and packaging facility allows Nelson Brothers to also supply product in drums, IBC’s or in bulk via road or rail, depending on customer preference.
