Our Company



Founded in 1997, Southern Chemical Corporation (SCC) has grown exponentially to become one of the largest importers and a market leader of methanol sales and distribution in North America. Methanol is an important ingredient in many essential industrial and consumer products, including paint and sealants, carpet, furniture and clothing fiber, pharmaceuticals, even CDs and DVDs. Methanol is also used in a variety of emerging energy applications, including fuel additives that reduce the environmental impact of cars and trucks around the world.

Starting in 2010, SCC further diversified its product portfolio with the addition of melamine. Melamine is used in products all around our homes, including laminate counter surfaces, plastic tableware, furniture, plywood sheathing, automotive paint, and flame-resistant materials.

We are committed to managing SCC as a growth-oriented international chemical partner that retains a “small company” philosophy in providing superior products and service to our business partners. With this growth comes a strong sense of social responsibility and commitment to serve the interests of our customers, employees, shareholders, business partners and community at large. Above all we believe in being a reliable company our stakeholders and customers can trust, and a good corporate citizen in terms of the way we treat our employees and maintain relationships in the marketplace.

Located in Houston, Southern Chemical has established a highly capable distribution network throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. SCC’s multiple production facilities add to the security of supply and service we provide to our rapidly expanding customer base. SCC has been recognized as a proven supplier in the North American market with numerous awards for our customer dedication.
