ChemicoMays is one of the largest minority-owned chemical management and distribution companies in the United States. For 27 years, Richardson has guided the company from a single employee start-up to an internationally recognized player in the chemical and environmental services space. Today, ChemicoMays employs more than 300 people across 22 states and three countries, and in 2015, saw sales of more than $100 million.

ChemicoMays is a highly regarded Tier 1 supplier to automotive equipment manufacturers and has been recognized as a General Motors Supplier of the Year for the past seven consecutive years. The company has received similar recognition from Toyota and Chrysler Capital.

Beyond automotive, ChemicoMays’ chemical management services take into account the entire chemical lifecycle from customer receipt of product to the product’s inventory, and its eventual disposal and recycling. The company’s success has been built on its ability to streamline the complex aspects of chemical lifecycle management.
