History

Gaylord Chemical Company LLC was created in a management buyout of Gaylord Chemical Corporation effective September 1, 2007. In 1962, Crown Zellerbach began an aggressive and comprehensive research program into the manufacture of Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS), Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) and other chemicals. The results of this extensive work would later give Gaylord Chemical Corporation an astounding depth of knowledge about these products.

The assets of Crown Zellerbach were sold in 1986. In 1988 Gaylord Chemical Corporation was formed as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Ownership of the company transferred to Temple Inland Inc in 2002 and to the current ownership in 2007. Today, Gaylord Chemical Company continues to manufacture DMS and DMSO.

Gaylord Chemical Company is the world’s oldest producer of DMS and DMSO. Gaylord Chemical Company is a certified cGMP manufacturing site and prides itself in delivering quality products, technical support and world-class customer service.  Gaylord Chemical is an on-purpose manufacturer of DMS and DMSO.  We are focused on these products and the customers that use them.
