Helping smart companies increase their production and productivity.  – Smart Food Processing For Greater Productivity

Food development for public consumption takes time, patience and a few good resources.  Equichem is one of your best resources.  At Equichem, we will R &D the key food ingredient and enzyme blend or nutritional profile to complete your product for production.  If you are in the flour, bakery or beverage industries use Equichem as your secret source.  90% of our products are custom formulated and manufactured to treat flour, condition dough for baking and power pack beverages with desired vitamins and minerals.  We are an aligned connection to your proven success.

Our Beginnings: 40 Years Ago


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.


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.
