When choosing a third party, or rather, chemical suppliers, is your responsibility, the risk is high. We believe that the following factors are the most important to choose the supplier and may be the best project.
- Is the supplier’s goal consistent with yours?
When evaluating whether a supplier is right for you, it’s important to ask about their mission, values, goals and corporate culture. When a company’s values are in line with yours, it’s usually a good sign that the partnership is good. Differences in overall mission, values, goals, and culture can potentially lead to conflict somewhere throughout the project.
- Is the supplier experienced?
Ask the supplier if they have experience and what kind of experience they have. Is it industry relevant? When suppliers have experience, this is usually a good sign that they also have expertise – expertise that will add value to your project and make it run better.

The supplier’s ability to work with you, stay flexible and respond to change is critical. Keep in mind that while it’s easy for a supplier to make a claim, reviews and past work are often more indicative of how the supplier operates.
