April 15, 2022

Greensboro, NC (March 22, 2022) – Spectrum Chemical Mfg. Corp. (Spectrum Chemical), a leading global provider of fine chemicals, lab equipment, and supplies serving more than 120 industries, has selected Carolina Liquid Chemistries Corp. (CLC) as one of a select group of customers to receive a special honor in celebration of Spectrum Chemical’s fiftieth anniversary. In February, Spectrum Chemical Senior Account Executive Gloria Franklin presented the award to CLC’s Michael Lewis, Production Manager, and Laura Orlow-Kojac, Quality Assurance Manager, at CLC’s production facility in Brea, CA.

Since 2003, CLC and GenChem, medical device companies owned by Philip and Patricia Shugart, have sourced fine chemicals from Spectrum for use in the production of their high quality, cost-effective reagents for use with biochemistry analyzers. These reagents are used in clinical laboratories located in physician offices, hospitals, and reference laboratories.

“It was an honor to be recognized by an industry leader like Spectrum for our commitment to high-quality reagents through the use of their fine chemicals. CLC is proud to be one of the few reagent manufacturers still located in the USA. Our partnership with Spectrum has helped us succeed for over twenty-five years and to consistently supply our customers without interruption throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that CLC and GenChem have merged, we look forward to an even stronger partnership with Spectrum,” said CLC’s Chief Operating Officer, Patricia Shugart.

“We are grateful for our partnership with CLC,” said Russell Kneipp, Chief Operating Officer for Spectrum Chemical. “We felt it was important to mark our fiftieth year in operation by recognizing those customers who have helped get us there. We admire CLC for their dedication to serving clinical labs, physicians, and hospitals.”
