A Day without Immigrants

As you may of heard today February 16th, 2017 is a day of protest across the nation. Being referred to as the “Day without Immigrants”, the protest is in response to policies and rhetoric of the current Administration that have been construed by many as anti-immigrant.

United Chemical as an organization does not take a political position. Our people come from a variety walks of life and political affiliations. I would never impose my personal political beliefs on members of our company. However, we do support our people. And the majority of those that work here at United Chemical are immigrants or are the children of immigrants.

We have discussed it as a group, put it up to a vote, and have concluded as a group to close today in a sign of solidarity for the protests and immigrants. While we all here may have different political views – even sometimes at odds with each other – we still support one another as people.

Both the office and production are currently closed. Our normal hours will resume tomorrow February 17th, 2017. This decision was not made lightly, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. While you may not agree with our decision, we hope you support our people for taking a stand for something that they believe in.

Thanks for your understanding and support,

Sincerely,

Scott Hamilton

Chief Executive Officer

Welcome to the New United Chemical

Welcome to the New United Chemical Online

I want to welcome you all to a project years in the making. I’ve had a vision of what a website worthy to carry the name United Chemical should be. After all, we believe in providing the best solutions, and educating our customers in every facet of what we do. We wanted to build a site that was more than just a catalog of products, but rather useful, educational, rewarding. While creating products is indeed an important part of what we do – it’s not the only thing we do – and that means having a site that does more than talk about products, but also provides solutions that don’t come in a bottle.

This is that site.

I am proud to introduce you to the new United Chemical website. Here I’ll give you a quick overview of what makes this more than your typical product site, and show some of the helpful features you can find here, so let’s “dive in” (pun intended).

Learning Center Visit Learning Center

A long-time project coming to fruition is our Learning Center. If you’re at all familiar with United Chemical, you know that we built ourselves around educating customers. In addition to the seminars we give at Pool Industry Tradeshows, and our technical support, we now have online classes to further empower you with knowledge. As time goes on, new classes will be added regarding pool chemistry, business and more. So head on over and check out the latest classes offered.

Support Center View Support

United Chemical has a reputation of providing the best technical support in the pool industry – and now we’ve raised the bar again. In our Support Center, you’ll find additional online tools to help you get answers quick and to solve your problems – along with the old standby’s of live personal help.

Downloads

In this section, you’ll find available downloads from United Chemical – everything from product images for your website to MSDS sheets on the products. This section is always expanding – making sure whatever you need is one download away.

Blog

In addition to our online tools, you’ll find articles like this one – talking about a variety of subjects; from technical to business, written by our team of Solution Educators. Our goal is to keep you informed on the industry, and on your pool.

Pool Calculators

We have also taken care of the math of balancing a pool; with our Pool Calculators you can quickly calculate the balancing needs of your pool. Just type in a value, and our online calculator does the rest.

Q&A Forum 

Education is a discussion. That’s why we built an arena where you can get help from not just United Chemical, but other Pool Professionals and Homeowners. Odds are if have a question or a problem, someone else has had the same question – and can give you an answer based on their experience; it’s about creating a community of support – of learning – as we grow together.

Business Solutions See Business Solutions

We are dedicated to our business customers; when you succeed, we succeed. That’s why we have developed solutions specifically designed to help add value to your business. Head on over and see what solutions are available for your type of business, and see what we can offer.

A special note to our Retailers: make sure to register to show on our online store locator, and get customers to your door.

 

I thank you for your support of United Chemical, and we hope you find our new site as a valuable tool for all your pool needs. And as it continues to develop and evolve, we want you to be a part of the process. So don’t be shy – let us know what you like and what you don’t, and you ideas on how we can make it better. Thanks for your help – and welcome to the new site!
