Our Mission

ChemTech, Inc. (ChemTech) was founded in 1993 with a mission to provide engineering and design assistance to facilities and corporate engineering centers in the United States and has since expanded internationally. ChemTech is committed to the development and enhancement of technical and design partnerships which allow us to provide value to our clients over the entire life of a project from the process development phase through detailed design and installation.

The highly collaborative environment fostered at ChemTech allows engineers to work in cross-functional teams, ensuring that no engineering discipline is overlooked. While in larger organizations your work is often relegated to a specific discipline, at ChemTech, we ensure that our solutions seamlessly integrate with multiple disciplines in order to ensure our work adds the level of value you expect.

ChemTech’s projects range from feasibility studies, front-end design and cost estimates through detail design, construction management and start-up assistance. The company is capable of providing full service detailed engineering through construction assistance on projects up to capital costs of $20,000,000 and can provide front-end packages on projects with capital costs as high as $40,000,000.
