Driving lead times down

The Chemstar Lean NPD process cuts time and waste out of product development, and we use planned delivery and floor-stock holding programs to optimize your shipments, domestically and around the world. With Chemstar, you’ll get to market faster and maximize your competitive edge.

Data-powered QA inspires product confidence

At Chemstar, we never stop exploring new and better ways to achieve product success. That includes:

  • Investing in sophisticated, data-driven Quality Assurance systems to optimize testing and control product integrity and consistency
  • Using statistical modeling to advance formulating and explore product outcomes while minimizing material costs
  • Implementing a rigorous continuous improvement program to inspire creative thinking and new approaches to ongoing challenges

International Consignment Program

Over the past 50 years, Chemstar has worked diligently to provide supply chain stability to our customers. One avenue we use to accomplish this goal is through our international consignment program. This program ensures local stock in critical areas for our clients, which in turn shortens lead times, reduces shipping costs, and ensures the product is there when you need it. In addition to inventory security, our consignment program offers you the benefit of delaying capital spending. The combination of these benefits mitigates your supply chain risks.
