management across an enterprise from dock-to-dock.

 

Chemical LeasingOnce upon a time, Ecolink’s founders established a total chemical management company, Strategic Chemical Management Group (SCMG), and managed all chemicals in use (lab & process, industrial gases, fuels, lubricants, etc.) for four of the largest electric power utilities operating in 1990’s: Southern California Edison (SCE), Florida Power Corp (now Progress Energy a subsidiary of Duke Energy), New Jersey Public Service Electric & Gas (PSEG) and New York Con Edison. SCE achieved more than $150M in annual cost reduction through SCMG’s strategic sourcing program and was featured in a book entitled “Harnessing Value in the Supply Chain: Strategic Sourcing in Action.”

 Chemical Management Today

Despite well documented chemical management case studies that show average chemical use reduction of 30% in addition to handling and disposal costs, less than 5% of industry and government agencies have adopted chemical management. Automotive, aerospace and military/defense are the primary adopters given their centralized purchasing, large chemical budgets and discrete manufacturing, remanufacturing processes and partner with total chemical management firms such as Haas™, Henkel™ and SAIC™.

With more than $250B spent annually in US alone on purchasing and managing industrial chemicals there is tremendous opportunities to reduce your total chemical throughput by 25-50% annually. Chemical management goes beyond invoicing and delivering product to optimizing processes, continuously reducing chemical lifecycle costs and risks, and reducing environmental impact.

Chemical Management Tomorrow (Hint: Leasing vs. Buying)

What’s next? Beginning in 2006, Chemical Leasing is a service-oriented business model that shifts the focus from increasing chemical volumes towards a value-added approach. The chemical producer mainly sells the function or utility performed by the chemical and the basis of payment is a fee per unit (part cleaned/coated) instead of quantity or volume of gallons. You can start with as little as 1 chemical or chemical process. We gladly work on a cost + basis, gain sharing or hourly rate. chemicalleasing@ecolink.com or call 800 563-1305
