Our story begins in India where our founder, Surendra Jain graduated from the University of Bombay with a degree in chemistry before moving to the US and enrolling ion the Philadelphia College of Textiles. From there, he worked at other manufacturing companies and in 1977 started Jain Chem. In 2002, he established CPJ Technologies which is the source of so much innovation and invention. Over 30 years of experience in the field has taught us that the key to success is a firm focus on the needs of the customer, developing processes that enable Jain Chem to deliver customized solutions, and to regard the health and safety of our employees, customers, and their customers with exceptional care.

We have done all this by developing exceptionally strong R&D and Technical Support teams, and by stressing innovation and experimentation. With the acquisition of Ulterion in 2011, our focus on sustainability and the health of our planet has been magnified substantially.

Jain Chem believes in acting as a partner, not just as a supplier. And we are committed to supporting the communities in which we and our partners do business.
