We’ve Risen in the Rankings on the 2019 ICIS Top 100 List

For the twelfth consecutive year, Coast Southwest has been named as one of the Top 100 Chemical Distributors in North America, in a ranking published by ICIS Chemical Business that’s based on 2018 sales.

ICIS ranked Coast Southwest #72 on the list of  North America’s chemical distribution leaders. Regional leaders are broken out separately for North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. It’s a rise from #76 on last year’s list, which itself was an advance over the year before.

ICIS is the world’s largest market information provider in petrochemicals. It’s a recognized authority in delivering information and analytics resources that global businesses in the industry can leverage to “identify and react to opportunities in markets which are constantly evolving.”  With 30 years’ experience providing pricing intelligence and news, forecast data, market analytics and independent consulting to buyers, sellers and analysts, it’s one of the most trusted resources available.

A recognition for doing things right

As we said last year, our improvement – and our inclusion on the list in the first place – comes because we’ve stuck to our company vision:

To be the preeminent regional chemical distributor and manufacturer to the personal care market and other formulating industries. 

We’re only as good as the people we have on board, from management to the laboratories to logistics, and the suppliers and customers who are eager to collaborate in bringing new solutions to market.

And, just like last year, this move up the rankings gives us something new to shoot for in 2020: To deliver even better innovation, service, and customer support.
