MENTOR, OH-Chemsultants International is proud to announce that July 15, 2011, marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the company. Started in 1986 as a one-man pressure sensitive adhesive consultancy by Richard P. Muny, the company has developed to become a premier product and service provider to industries worldwide. From modest beginnings in a 550-square-foot rented office space in Painesville, OH, Chemsultants has grown to now include two companies, Chemsultants International Inc. and ChemInstruments Inc., both focused on the areas of adhesives, specialty coatings, polymers and materials.

Chemsultants International Inc. is located in Mentor, OH, and provides a wide variety of services to industry including physical and analytical testing, product development, contract research, consulting, education and training, process development and optimization, specialty pilot coating and small scale manufacturing of web-coated materials.

A 10-acre technology campus serves as the corporate headquarters for Chemsultants International Inc., and includes the research facility and coating production operations.

ChemInstruments Inc. is located in Fairfield, OH, and manufactures the most extensive line of pressure sensitive adhesive test equipment, materials characterization equipment and lab sample preparation equipment for product development in the PSA industry.

Chemsultants International is a family owned and operated business. It has realized solid double digit sales growth each year for 25 years through the expansion of core company product lines and services, penetration of new markets including energy, electronics and medical devices and through strategic acquisitions. Chemsultants International Inc. acquired and absorbed Adhesive Consultants Inc. in 2003 and ChemInstruments Inc. acquired the Tantec line of contact angle meters in 2004. Chemsultants International Inc. has been recognized for its business growth and success four separate times in the past eight years by the Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Business.

“We are proud to have reached this milestone in our company history. While Dick Muny has retired from day-to-day activity in the business, all of us who are part of Chemsultants and ChemInstruments are carrying on the entrepreneurial spirit that was the basis for the founding of the company and is the basis for our continuing success,” says Gary Avalon, chief operating officer.
