SOCMA welcomes six new member companies in first quarter 2019.

The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) welcomes Archroma, Cadence Bank, Century Global, LLC, EMD Performance Materials, FM Global and Volunteer Pastilles, LLC, to the association’s community of specialty and fine chemical manufacturers, distributors and service providers. The six new member companies were unanimously approved by SOCMA’s board of governors during a recent meeting in Fort Worth, TX.

“We have a number of clients in the specialty chemical and affiliated industries who are SOCMA members and speak very highly of the value they receive from being part of the organization,” says Steven Wrinkle, operations senior vice president and manager of FM Global’s Chemical Operations. “Given FM Global’s unique focus on property risk prevention within the industry, we believe being a SOCMA member provides opportunities for a mutually advantageous relationship with the organization.”

New member EMD Performance Materials is the U.S.-based high-tech materials business of Merck KGaA in Darmstadt, Germany. “EMD Performance Materials was looking for the right partner to advocate on our behalf in the industry,” says Luiz Vieira, president and managing director of EMD Performance Materials. “We can appreciate the value and benefits the SOCMA network brings.”

SOCMA President & CEO Jennifer Abril is encouraged and energized by the interest and growing engagement she sees throughout the membership. “In listening to our members, SOCMA has bolstered its commercial services, compliance and stewardship programming and advocacy efforts to align with the industry’s growth and the business and operational needs that come along with it,” she says. “We look forward to partnering with our new members to magnify and strengthen their footprint within the supply chain.”
