:EnCee Chemical Sales, Inc.
was founded in 1955 as an industrial chemical distributor. The
privately held company was founded to supply chemicals in Eastern North
Carolina. The company grew and in 1964 a specialty chemicals division
emerged. That division supplied cleaning compounds, sanitizes and conveyor
lubricant to the beverage, dairy, and food manufacturing industries nationwide.
In the 1970's, the company began manufacturing sodium glucoheptonate.
Initially, the manufacturing of sodium glucoheptonates was to supply the
specialty chemicals division. In the 1980's, we began supplying formulators
and concrete admixture plants with glucoheptonates. We began providing
glucoheptonates to agricultural micronutrient producers in the mid 1980's.
Today the manufacture and sale of sodium glucoheptonate products represent
the core of ENCEE's business.
Our products go by the name CEE*QUEST. These are biodegradable chelating compounds that make metals water soluble. We have the ability to concentrate materials to 60% active in a liquid state. These materials are used in three major markets. Concrete admixtures, industrial cleaners and agriculture chelations. We have current research and development going on.
