  • RSC CHEMICAL SOLUTIONS® Announces Plans to Close Manufacturing Facility to Focus on Innovation and Customer Experience

    INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. (January 11, 2018) —

    RSC Chemical Solutions announced today a restructuring plan for its manufacturing operations in response to changes in their industry and a renewed focus on innovation and customer experience. The plans will improve efficiencies across global business units and increase flexibility to respond to changes in the automotive, retail and industrial markets. One of the key elements in the restructuring is that RSC will close its Indian Trail manufacturing facility by June 30, 2018. The corporate headquarters for RSC Chemical Solutions and RSC Bio Solutions will continue to operate out of the Indian Trail location.

    “Now is the time to reposition RSC to ensure profitable growth and adapt to shifts in our market, which means dedicating more resources to research and developing new products that help solve problems. The industries and end-users we serve continue to demand professional grade products that make their jobs easier.” said CEO Mike Guggenheimer. “As we readjust our focus, the organization will be aligned to deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs of our end- users, including more environmentally sustainable options, along with positioning RSC as an even stronger strategic partner to our retail customers.”

    Moving forward, RSC will transition to a contract manufacturing business model. Through the continued and growing focus on R&D, RSC will partner with a network of domestic manufacturers that will extend their ability to develop new products, deliver them to customers on time and support the increasingly broad customer base. This also includes focusing on the development of their performance environmental product portfolio through RSC Bio Solutions.

    The transition will impact a total of 66 positions in a range of departments across the company. “These decisions are never easy, and it was one we did not take lightly. This is a 94-year-old company, and one that employs incredible people. We are mindful of the impact on our community, and we will be helping those affected through the transition.” commented Reaiah Brown, Director of Human Resources.
