Our History

DanChem is a custom manufacturer of specialty chemical products providing capacity and technical support to major companies on a national and global scale.

Founded in 1960 as the Research Division of Dan River, Inc, a US textile company, the company expanded into non-textile chemical manufacturing in the 1970’s. Today, we are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edgewater Capital Partners. (http://edgewatercapital.com/).
