Chemicals

The chemical industry comprises the companies that produce industrial chemicals. Central to the modern world economy, it converts raw materials (oil, natural gas, air, water, metals, and minerals) into more than 70,000 different products. We've built many databases for this industry including E.I. DuPont (Richmond, VA); Hercules Chemical (Wilmington, DE and Franklin, VA); Simpson-Strong Tie, Baltimore, Maryland; NuFarm Pesticides (Raleigh, NC); and Chemtreat (Richmond, VA)

Here are some clients we have helped in the Chemicals industry:

Project Description

Nufarm Americas Inc. Raleigh, NC NuFarm is a pesticide chemical manufacturer that initially engaged us to build an Access Database to track Environmentl Protection Agency (EPA) forms. They have over 2,000 EPA forms on file with the US Government. We were the PHP developer and the MySQL developer for this project. Upon further conversation and discovering the intent of this chemical/pesticide client, we decided that an Access Database WAS NOT the proper solution. They desired people AROUND THE WORLD to enter and query their application. So we built this database using PHP web pages and a SQL Server data file. You may find more information about this application at www.data-blade.com

About NuFarm from their website - NuFarm

Our North American operation encompasses several business units serving agriculture, turf, ornamental and greenhouse, seed treatment, and industrial vegetation management. Nuseed, our global seed business, is also based in the US.

Two plants in the Chicago area produce 90 percent of the product we sell in the US. Our Alsip site, opened in 2013, produces fungicides, insecticides, growth regulators and seed treatments. This state-of-the art facility includes a full quality control lab, a pilot plant, and unique custom-blend capabilities.
