August 8 marks the 94th anniversary of Univar’s inception. What started as a small firm in Seattle has grown into one of the world’s largest chemical distribution companies. We wanted to share an overview of our growth through the years and thank you for partnering with us!
We hope you enjoy these throwbacks as much as we do:
In 1924 Van Waters & Rogers (VWR) was established in Seattle and sold only a few items including paint, raw materials, soda ash, cotton linters, and denatured alcohol. Today, Univar Environmental Sciences alone sells more than 6,000 products!
