2020 Supplier of the Year - Alta Labs
US Chemicals WOB

When Carol Piccaro took over the chemical distribution company founded by her Dad, a company with a 60-year legacy of 

industry-leading innovation and best-in-class customer service, she did something remarkable – she made it even better.


At U.S. Chemicals, A Woman-Owned Business, we adhere to the same high standards our customers have come to expect and appreciate over the years, while placing a laser focus on meeting the needs of companies who value diversity in their

chemical supply chain.

Yes She Did.

We’ve been the “go to” call for over 60 years, with a network of contacts with decades of expertise, customized services and worldwide pricing, and we’ll continue to set the gold standard for years to come.

Customer Service

Our founder, Howard T. Von Oehsen lived by the mantra: “If our customers are not successful, then we are not successful.” Words we still live by today, which is why we go to any lengths to satisfy our customers and why they keep coming back.

Financial Stability

With lessons learned from Howard, our company prides itself on financial stability giving both our suppliers and customers a sense of comfort and confidence. Stocking several months of inventory reduces risks of any voids in supply.


It’s our capability that attracts new customers. It’s our people who make them lifelong customers. We foster relationships that make business reliable, familiar, and pleasantly personal.


As a woman-owned business, we not only value diversity, but we see its contribution to our business every day. That’s why we actively seek to build upon our diverse foundation and engage like-minded customers and business partners.

Corporate Citizenship

These days, a lot of companies talk the talk. We walk the walk, sometimes literally going to the ends of the earth for service projects and to ensure that we always have a positive impact on the world around us.
