Production and Distribution
Five Canadian production/distribution facilities, supplemented with an Atlantic Canada joint venture and US contract packaging alliances, ensures rapid and cost effective service to customers all over North America.
All sites produce their own HDPE bottles in a number of sizes including our proprietary multi-layer co-extruded solvent bottles. Liquids are filled in containers ranging from 50mL bottles to tanker trucks and rail cars.
All sites are highly automated with blowmoulders, filling lines, palletizers and robotic case packers allowing 24-hour operation, rapid response and ISO standards of product quality nation-wide.
Through worldwide contacts, competitive zeal and extensive industry association activity we keep ahead of trends, new methods and improved processes so that we can offer our customers the best service and products.
Our staff provides personalized service for each customer’s special requirements while our EDI & Category Management Systems assure instant response and rapid order processing. Trained communicators handle consumer inquiries to assist our retailer customers with great customer service.
We pride ourselves on our flexibility that comes from blowing and filling our bottles in-house. We produce and ship identical, on-spec product 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from our five locations across Canada.

Technical Service and Development
We use our chemical and performance tests to assist in product development. Recochem continues to expand its coolant fluid knowledge base by developing new coolant technology with enhanced performance. We also use these tests to trouble-shoot customer coolant system issues. Recochem Technical Service Personnel can help customers resolve in-field coolant related issues.
Our chemists and technical support staff are on 24-hour stand-by to answer questions. In the highly specialized transportation fluids market, this is particularly important to fleet owners and maintenance managers of heavy machinery.
