A Specialty Organic Chemical Company
Lindau Chemicals, Inc. was formed in 1967 as a producer of specialty organic compounds. The company's founders, experienced in industrial chemistry and chemical production, first set out in toll and custom manufacturing.
However, before long Lindau was directing more and more attention to its proprietary products. Before the end of its first year, the company was producing Methyltetrahydrophthalic Anhydride - today marketed under the name LINDRIDE - as a curing agent for epoxy resins.
Other proprietary products such as coating resins and adhesion promoters eventually followed, and in 1985, Lindau abandoned all efforts in TOLL manufacturing. From its modest beginning with four employees, Lindau has evolved into a highly skilled team of employees dedicated to providing products of exceptional quality throughout the world. Lindau's state-of-the-art production facility is located in Columbia, South Carolina.
Lindau is committed to operating its manufacturing facilities and processes in a safe and proper manner. We have an effective and continuous safety and environmental program incorporating policies and procedures maintained to teach safety, correct deficiencies, provide a safe, clean working environment, and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. All company supervisors, managers, and officers are responsible for the enforcement of safety and environmental policies and practices.
We have a thorough Process Safety Management Program to help prevent accidental releases and fires. The program includes procedures for analyses of manufacturing processes, called Process Hazard Analysis which is a systematic approach to identifying, evaluating, and controlling the hazards of process and the use, storage and handling of all hazardous chemicals.
Lindau has a comprehensive Emergency Response Plan which details response and notification procedures in case of spills, fires and other emergencies. We maintain a working relationship between Lindau's management and the Columbia Fire Department. Firefighters have periodically visited Lindau's facility to become familiar with the layout and materials present. Lindau employees are trained regularly on evacuation, emergency response and notification procedures.
