Inside Univar

When Jim Delaney started at Univar in 1983, Ronald Reagan was president, Billy Martin managed the NY Yankees and Michael Jackson’s Thriller was number one on the charts. A lot has changed in the past three decades, but one thing has remained the same: Jim loves his job just as much today as he did in 1983. Actually, he may love it even more.   Jim has grown from a young Customer Service Representative to one of two Regional Directors in the country. In between, he has held positions as a Univar Sales Representative, Field Sales Manager, Area Department Manager, Sales Team Leade...

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! In 1...

When Nate first moved to the west coast from his home in Washington, D.C., he was in for a bit of culture shock. Growing up near the Mason-Dixon line, he’d always been accustomed to friendly discussions with neighbors and other locals. But in California, it seemed people drove directly into their garages and called it a night — not the easiest environment to connect with people.   The year was 1998 and Nate was kicking off a career in pest management that would go quite far, quite fast. Starting off as a route technician, he soon became Orange County’s pest contro...

They expect it.To a company like ours that places tremendous value on not just serving customers, but guiding them, that’s a directive. And it’s a la...

If there’s one word that seems to frame every element of Cris’ life, it’s drive. For starters, you’ll find her at the golf course, driver in hand, almost every weekend. Cris had toyed with the sport on and off for years, but started playing seriously around 2007. Since then she’s upped her game, lowered her handicap, and made her way to the Masters twice — as a spectator, at least.  “It was awesome and was definitely on my bucket list,” she said of the tournament. Her enthusiasm about “the holy grail of all golf events” wa...

At Univar, we don't like to make special announcements about every single company update.

It's hard to imagine what could be bigger than that.This is huge for us on the Univar side since we've taken months to research, design, and develop a new site that does everything PestWeb currently does, except better. Every change was based on existi...
