In 1990, our founder, Dr. Bernard Gordon III, PhD, was working as a professor of polymer science at Penn State University. He saw an opportunity to capitalize on a niche market by developing a novel process of producing poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline), later trade named Aquazol®, while remaining cost effective for customers. This entrepreneurial ambition paved the way for the company we are today. 30 years later, PCI is still the only commercial manufacturer of Aquazol® (PEtOx) and has expanded into other specialty materials – each synthesized through innovative processes known and developed exclusively by PCI’s chemists.
Polymer Chemistry Innovations operates in two locations: Tucson, Arizona and Chocolate Bayou, Texas. With these two locations and a wide range of equipment and experience, PCI has abundant manufacturing capacity and advanced technical capabilities to meet all customers’ needs.
The secret to our success is no secret at all. Polymer Chemistry Innovations has curated a strong team that approaches their work with integrity, passion and creativity. With top level experts in Polymer Chemistry, Manufacturing, Quality and more, PCI can meet all of our customers’ needs.
Family owned and into the second generation of operations, it is important to PCI that both employees and customers feel like family. With the core values of Accountability, Respect, and Communication, we optimize our work environment for the manufacturing of high-quality products delivered with personalized service.
