MENTOR, OH - July 15, 2011, marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of Chemsultants International. Started in 1986 as a one-man pressure sensitive adhesive consultancy by Richard P. Muny, the company has developed to become a product and service provider to industries worldwide. From modest beginnings in a 550-square-foot rented office space in Painesville, OH, Chemsultants has grown to now include two companies: Chemsultants International Inc. and ChemInstruments Inc. Both companies are focused on the areas of adhesives, specialty coatings, polymers and materials.

Chemsultants International Inc. is located in Mentor, OH, and provides a wide variety of services to industry including physical and analytical testing, product development, contract research, consulting, education and training, process development and optimization, specialty pilot coating, and small-scale manufacturing of web-coated materials. A 10-acre technology campus serves as the corporate headquarters for Chemsultants International Inc. and includes the research facility and coating production operations.

ChemInstruments Inc. is located in Fairfield, OH, and manufactures an extensive line of pressure sensitive adhesive test equipment, materials characterization equipment and lab sample preparation equipment for product development in the PSA industry.

“We are proud to have reached this milestone in our company history. While Dick Muny has retired from day-to-day activity in the business, all of us who are part of Chemsultants and ChemInstruments are carrying on the entrepreneurial spirit that was the basis for the founding of the company and is the basis for our continuing success,” said Gary Avalon, Chief Operating Officer.
