Learn about the science of success, and discover how United Chemical became the industry leader it is today.
United Chemical has a long and rich history within our industry, and over the years has made a lasting impact. But what drives us? Why do we do what we do? And how do we go about doing it? As our CEO Scott Hamilton explains, it starts with the founder and his father Jock Hamilton:
The Why - Our Core Purpose
"Jock was incredibly smart – a genius. It seemed like he knew everthing, and more so could explain it so you would understand. When I was about 10 years old or so, Dad and I were in the car talking about something science related – we were a bit geeky like that. I remember asking him “Dad, you’re so smart – why aren’t you President or something? Why make pool chemicals? Why not do something big that matters?” He thought to himself for a second, and said “Well, I think what I do does matter. I help people, and I make people happy.”
The How - Core Values
At United Chemical, we hold certain values above all others – and this governs how we operate. These all stem from the core values Jock used to build us from the ground up. It serves as our compass as we pursue our purpose.
