Our History

Columbus Chemical Industries, Inc. traces its roots to the mid-1960s when brothers Richard, Edward, and Thomas Sheard packaged and sold laboratory chemicals from a printed catalog.   Richard Sheard officially incorporated Columbus Chemical Industries, (CCI), in 1978 as a company servicing the needs for laboratory chemicals. As growth was built on marketplace success, CCI became known for specialty chemicals, in particular high purity chemicals. This ability to produce and supply products of high purity led to growth in a number of industries including the electronics / semiconductor, pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Since our founding in Columbus, Wisconsin in the 1970’s, CCI has achieved significant growth which included numerous expansions and today includes production facilities in Columbus, WI and Phoenix, AZ. We are pleased to be recognized as a world class supplier of high purity chemical products and custom engineered solutions to Fortune 500 companies around the world! Richard Sheard continues his entrepreneurial leadership today as CCI’s Chairman of the Board to guide CCI through a bright and growing future.

Environmental Sustainability

One of CCI’s core values is “Safe Environment”. This value not only incorporates the procedures we have to respect and keep our team members safe everyday, but includes “Environmental Sustainability”. CCI is dedicated to the development, implementation and maintenance of sustainable processes. We are regularly recognized by customers, suppliers, the community and regulators for our processes, the results we achieve and our willingness to share our practices with others. Although these may be good corporate practices, they are vitally important to us because we live with our neighbors and friends in the communities where we work. Our sustainability goals are designed to handle all chemicals safely, improve energy efficiency, and minimize the consumption of natural resources in order to maintain our valuable resources for future generations.
