Bill Lewis, Everchem’s VP of Business Development and Sales, adds, “Everchem is delighted to have
been chosen by Shepherd Chemical to grow their presence in the North American urethane
marketplace. Shepherd is a world-class domestic producer of catalysts. Their innovative bismuth
and zinc-based products are an intriguing alternative to tin based catalysts. Their technical and
production expertise should work well with our focus and insight on the urethane marketplace."
