We derive strength and competitive advantage in many ways, including from our scale, broad product offering, high service level, long-standing relationships with supplier partners and our industry-leading safety record.
We operate one of the most extensive chemical distribution networks in the world, comprised of more than 600 distribution facilities, approximately 90 million gallons of chemical storage tank capacity with hundreds of tractors, railcars, tankers and trailers operating daily through our facilities.
We offer a wide range of chemical products and services across nearly all end-use markets.
Globally, we provide our customers with one-to-three day order lead times and greater than 96 percent on-time delivery from our nearby facilities.
To complement our extensive product portfolio, we offer to our customers several specialized, value-added services, such as our unique distribution business focused on the marketing and sale of specialty and fine chemicals (ChemPoint.com), automated tank monitoring and refill of less than truckload quantities (MiniBulk), chemical waste management (ChemCare), technical support and specialty product blending and formulation, particularly in agriculture.
We have developed strong, long-term relationships, many spanning several decades, with the world's premier global chemical producers and distribute products to more than 100,000 customer locations around the globe, from small- and medium-sized businesses to global industrial customers.
Our commitment to safety, strong safety record and compliance with federal, state and local environmental regulatory requirements is an increasingly important consideration for suppliers and customers when choosing a chemical distributor. In 2016, we continued to make safety progress, achieving an industry-leading total case incident rate of 0.69.
