A.G. Layne Strengthens Its Leadership By Acquiring Sunland Chemical & Research Corporation

On March 31, 2023, A.G. Layne, a respected leader in chemical distribution, added the Sunland Chemical & Research Corporation to its roster. With Sunland’s highly valued assets, A.G. Layne continues to offer its industrial customers even more advantages by meeting their needs with a wider variety of products and services at the best prices.

Sunland began its distinguished business with an incorporation in 1962 by its founder Frank Bordeaux. President/CEO Max Cohen and his team later took the helm when there was a need to service the Electronic and Aerospace, Water Treatment, Automotive, Medical and Municipal Cleaning Industries.

Today, in addition to serving these and many other industries, Sunland offers notable resources such as 28 blending tanks varying from 2,000 to 6,000 gallons and warehouse loading docks fitted with sprinklers. The company can also expertly blend non-hazardous and hazardous chemicals along with providing state-of-the-art packaging sized down into bulk, tote, drum, pail, and gallon, and 32 oz, 16 oz, and 2 oz. bottles. Sunland also features a laboratory for quality control.

Another advantage to partnering with Sunland is its dedicated practices of high-quality sustainability. These include waste prevention, formulation designs for safety, the environment, and the regulatory climate. In addition, there is emphasis on renewable materials with a focus on formulation energy efficiency.

A.G. Layne President & CEO Michael R. Lee states, “We are proud to welcome Sunland into the A.G. Layne family. There’s no doubt that our customers will join us in benefiting from Sunland’s over 54 years of experience, knowledge and chemical expertise.”
