Tri-Chem Industries was incorporated in 1989 by Leslie Hollis, who founded it by simply recognizing the needs of the customer and fulfilling those needs full service from supplier to delivery. In 1993, Tri-Chem Industries, Inc. opened its blending and manufacturing facilities in St. Gabriel, Louisiana to better meet those customer’s needs.
Leslie Hollis graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in Chemical Engineering, B.S. in 1983. Leslie’s early experience was as a production engineer in the petrochemical industry, specifically the Chlor-alkali industry. After several years as a production engineer, the brine clarification experience Leslie received opened the door for her to transition into industrial water treatment.
Tri-Chem Industries has grown to be a manufacturer and distributor of specialty chemicals for food and industrial applications with a full product line of silicone and non-silicone antifoams/defoamers, silicone emulsions, phosphoric acid, phosphate derivatives, and custom blending solutions. Tri-Chem continues to operate with the highest level of integrity and provides quality products with excellent customer service.
