When you think hydrotropes - you think Nease. For almost 50 years we've been meeting client needs. Reliability and customer focus are the cornerstones to meeting these needs. Today Nease continues our commitment to providing quality hydrotropes, but we offer much more than that. As seen from the company history the Nease name has changed but not the focus of our people. And at Nease it's the people that make a difference. As a leader in the production of sulfonated aromatics, Nease Corporation has a broad hydrotrope line which is complemented by an ever expanding capability in specialty products with a basic strength in sulfonation technology. Founded in 1951 as Pedlow-Nease Company which later became Nease Chemical Company. During 1999 Marketing and R&D functions relocated to Cincinnati to better service our customers. In 2005 Nease Corporation was spun off from Ruetgers Chemicals AG and became a wholly owned subsidiary of International Chemical Investors ( ICI ). ICI is a private equity group headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, and specializes in investments in medium sized chemical companies.
