We are pleased to announce that Solvay has expanded our geography to encompass the 18 western states including Texas and the entire Pacific Northwest for the Personal Care Industry.
Ross Organic has been marketing surfactant based technology and solutions for Solvay for nearly 25 years. First we operated as a distributor for the McIntyre Group, purchased by Rhodia in 2009, and now Solvay, who purchased Rhodia last year.
"The expanded agreement with Solvay is a big win for our company, " remarked Stephanie Leshney, President and CEO. " Ross Organic will be Solvay's first market-dedicated distributor in the Western Region. We see this fact as both an enormous honor and responsibility".

This year our company has stepped up to the plate again in support of the Chemical Educational Foundation's (CEF) program entitled, You Be the Chemist (YBTC) by sponsoring a local Long Beach school in this competition.
This competition is exciting and structured like a spelling bee, but with chemistry facts. Our sponsored school, Bethany Lutheran, held its Local Challenge on Thursday, March 14th. There were 24 students participating. At the end we had 4 winners who will progress to the State Challenge, which will be held in May at the Discovery Science Center in Orange County. After the state challenge, the winners will proceed to the National Challenge, which will be held in June in Philadelphia. Regardless of the future success of our participants, they are ALL winners for taking part in this exciting program.
This is a volunteer program for the sake of promoting chemistry education, which is such a vital part of today's world. Not only do we all touch and use a multitude of chemicals in our daily lives, but 8 out of 10 jobs in the next decade will require a science and/or math background. We at Ross Organic will be cheering on our participants in the State Challenge, and we invite anybody who would like to get involved with this program to contact us.
