The history of Reaxis Inc. dates back to 1965 with the incorporation of Pitt Processing and Manufacturing Company, later known as Pitt Metals and Chemicals, Inc. The company initiated the manufacture of inorganic tin compounds in the 1970s. Pitt Metals was acquired by Goldschmidt AG of Essen, Germany in 1995 and then became Goldschmidt Industrial Chemical Corporation (GICC). Through a succession of several mergers and acquisitions, GICC became part of Degussa AG (now Evonik Industries AG). In 2006, GICC became an independent company through a management buyout. The company name was officially changed to Reaxis Inc. in 2008, and we've become the preferred specialty chemical company of manufacturers across North America.
Today, Reaxis is the only US-based manufacturer of a wide range of metal-based additives and the most diverse US-based manufacturer of metal-based additive products and metal-based catalysts, including catalyst of esterification, transesterification, polyurethane and polysiloxane rations, as well as surface finishing, complexation, and redox chemistries.
We manufacture an extensive range of products used across numerous industries, including plastics, coatings, elastomers, adhesives, sealants, personal care, hydrogen peroxide, oil/gas drilling additives, electronics, and lubricants. With more than 55 years of manufacturing a wide range of consistently high-quality standard and specialty chemical products, our goal is to provide increased value to our customers, while helping them to deliver next-generation products and remain economically and globally competitive.
