ASHTA Chemicals Inc. opened its corporate offices in Ashtabula, Ohio in 1992, although, under previous owners, this site has been operating since the early 1960's. Since then, ASHTA management has taken a number of steps which positioned the company for profitable growth. These steps include the purchase of Olin's potassium products business in 1993, designing and implementing a closed loop, zero discharge water treatment system for this Lake Erie site in 1994-5, and construction of a new potassium carbonate plant in 1995. In sales and marketing, our focus is on markets and products which provide sustained, profitable growth for our core potassium hydroxide chemistry. Additionally, our product distribution system was significantly expanded in 1998 to provide ample product in key chemical markets. From Ashtabula, we service our customers from two production sites, 13 liquid terminals, and 3 warehouses, strategically located in the United States and Canada.
