Who We Are

Dave Imhof

Troy Chemical Industries was founded in 1971 by Dave Imhof and 5 additional investors with extensive backgrounds in chemical specialty manufacturing, marketing, quality control and technical service. From the beginning, Troy serviced the industrial, metal pretreatment, institutional and private- label/toll blending markets. Over the years, we expanded into market segments in food processing and pulp and paper.

Today the company is headed by Lee Imhof, under whose leadership Troy has continued to grow and build a sound customer base in its key markets, while managing to maintain the culture and stability that has earned Troy its reputation. In fact, the average length of service of Troy employees is more than 15 years. We are also proud to have customers who have been with us for more than 30 years!

Such customer loyalty is not an accident. At Troy, selling chemicals is not the goal but rather a means to an end—namely, high quality service and solutions. Our focus is on helping our customers manage and improve their processes in an increasingly competitive world. Forging long-term relationships where we are an integral contributor to our customers’ success is our goal. Ask us to become part of your team, too!

Our team is guided by a set of core values and beliefs: Above all, we value honesty and integrity alongside safety and environmental compliance. At Troy, we listen to the voice of our customers and treat our people like our family.
