Our Beginnings: 40 Years Ago

1980-1985

Our story begins with Luis C. Lovis and Pennwalt Corporation.  1980:  Pennwalt assists Luis C. Lovis to incorporate Equi-Chem International, Inc. as the exclusive representative company for their Flour Milling Division in the Global Market.  This successful partnership continued until 1985, when Pennwalt sold operations to what was then known as Elf Atochem North America.

Today:

We remain headquartered in the Chicago area and still fulfill a need within the flour milling industry and now the bakery and beverage industries as well.  Helping smart companies increase their production and productivity.
