Lois and C. Kenneth Zelle started what would become Chemical Concepts, Inc. from their Philadelphia home in 1960. Starting in the year 1963 the company, then known as Airdraulics, transitioned from pumps and dispensing equipment to high end adhesives. All starting with a strategic partnership with the Lord Corporation, a major adhesive company. As the product lines were expanded to include more and more adhesive manufacturers, the name was changed to “Chemical Concepts,” to better describe the company’s focus.
Today, Chemical Concepts, is a leading supplier of adhesives, specialty chemicals and related products leveraging our extensive expertise to provide innovative solutions to various markets including aerospace, architectural signage, and stone and solid surface fabrication.
In 2006 Chemical Concepts acquired a similar company and, along with it, their building on 410 Pike Rd in Huntingdon Valley, PA. Since then, the company has continued to expand thanks to our loyal customers and our commitment to providing the best adhesive products with exceptional service.
