SAN FRANCISCO – Specialty chemicals distributor Pacific Coast Chemicals (PCC) announced the sale of the company to Ravago Chemical, a subsidiary of Ravago Holdings America. The business will remain as Pacific Coast Chemicals with no interruption of supply of products to customers. Ravago is committed to the people, customers and suppliers of Pacific Coast Chemicals.

"It is exciting to have found a great company that will allow the legacy of PCC to continue for decades to come. Ravago offers our customers and employees a great opportunity to build upon the foundation my father started and that we have grown over the past 50 years. This is an exciting new chapter for our employees, customers and suppliers we serve," said Dominic Stull, CEO of Pacific Coast Chemicals.

“We are excited to announce the addition of PCC as part of our family and a key component to our NA Specialty Chemical Distribution Platform. PCC offers us a tremendous opportunity to collaborate with suppliers we have in common and foster new supplier relationships as well. PCC brings diversity in the markets we serve due to their strength in food, beverage, personal care and CASE. I look forward to working with Dominic Stull, whom I have known for over 30 years, and Craig Frial, PCC’s former President, who will be leading the West Coast Region," said Lori Hilson Cioromski, GM & VP of Chemicals.

We continue to focus our efforts on cultural fit and industry expertise by providing resources to build a world-class North American specialty distributor network," said Jim Duffy, President and CEO of Ravago Americas.
