Our Company History
Tom Oppold Sr. and Mary Bruzdzinski started Global Chemical Resources out of a home office in Naperville, IL. The business began as a stocking importer, utilizing a public warehouse in Bedford Park, IL.
Global Chemical Resources opened a corporate office in Toledo, OH. and leased a small warehouse to provide simple blends and packaging for our growing customer base.
Moved into a 180,000 square foot facility at 1925 Nebraska Avenue in Toledo. This location expanded Global’s capabilities from a service standpoint. Tank truck loading and unloading, larger batch packaging and blending, as well as third-party storage solutions were added.
Global Chemical purchased a truck and began offering bulk tanker delivery with our own trucking company, Chemtruck. It has allowed us to offer complete turn key warehouse operations at our Toledo facilities.
Purchased a second building in Toledo, OH to take advantage of the local railway access. Global can now provide trans-loading services for customers wanting to pack liquid bulk chemicals to IBC’s, Drums, or directly into tank trucks. Global has continued to utilize both buildings to creative solve problems for our customers.
