Chemical Toll Blending
At Arrochem, a large percentage of our business is chemical toll blending.

What is toll blending?
The terms toll blending, contract manufacturing, contract blending, toll manufacturing all refer to essentially the same arrangement. It’s a process in which customers provide us with a formula and usually some or all of the necessary raw materials and packaging to produce a chemical blend, and we blend, package prepare shipments for a predetermined fee.

Why consider toll blending?
Toll blending contracts are synergistic arrangements that allow our customers to leverage our manufacturing expertise and flexibility to their advantage. Our customers bring us toll blending projects for a variety of reasons. Here are a few:

• Customers who run their own manufacturing facilities bring us toll blending projects when orders exceed their production capacity. Rather than investing capital in moving to a larger facility, or adding employees to respond to a spike in orders that may be temporary, they trust their overflow production to Arrochem. Orders are filled promptly and cost efficiently with less financial risk.

• Manufacturers located in other regions of the US or overseas choose Arrochem as a toll blending partner when they need to provide chemical products to their customers in the Southeast and/or Mid-Atlantic regions. Often a product can be manufactured at Arrochem’s Mt. Holly plant and shipped within our area at substantially lower cost than the customer would incur producing at their own facility and shipping a longer distance.

• Customers who currently use another toll blender often ask us to quote on new projects, or to evaluate their existing toll blending arrangements to see if we can improve upon them. Switching to Arrochem can help eliminate problems with quality, cost, and turnaround time. In cases where switching blenders isn’t feasible, Arrochem can become a valuable secondary source, ready to fill manufacturing needs quickly in an emergency situation.

• Startup companies approach us with a variety of toll blending projects. Some have a product idea and need formulation assistance. Others have a perfected formula and need to gradually begin producing as their business ramps up, without huge upfront costs. Others prefer to focus on sales and marketing, and choose to outsource the manufacturing part of their business permanently.

Whether you represent a large international manufacturing concern, a small startup company, or anything in between Arrochem is ready to address your toll blending needs.
