Company History

In 1988, Ed Richman started Richman Chemical to help emerging and established pharmaceutical and chemical companies use resources more efficiently. Ed' career started working in Synthetic Fiber R&D with Celanese and then Rohm & Haas. He worked at National Starch & Chemical for 10 years, eventually serving as Director, Chemical Business. He observed first-hand the intricacies of outsourcing within the chemical industry and parlayed that experience into a successful start up.  Richman Chemical's custom manufacturing, product sourcing, and project management solutions make it possible for companies to spend more time and resources in their area of expertise and core technology development.
