The chemical distribution industry has created good paying, locally-focused jobs in the United States for decades. Through NACD’s Responsible Distribution® program, the industry is twice as safe as all manufacturing combined as a direct result of its environmental, health, safety and security practices. According to an independent analysis conducted in 2021 by John Dunham and Associates, our industry is a major economic engine successfully employing over 75,000 people and generating $8.68 billion in tax revenue for local communities across the country, all while delivering valuable products to every industry sector.
