Are Chemicals Keeping you from Meeting Deadlines?

Out of the myriad complications that industrial businesses must fret over and deal with should any single one occur, possibly the most debilitating scenario involves industrial businesses waiting on late chemical shipments that force these businesses to push back and delay deadlines. The inability to meet deadlines can cripple a business. How so? The failure of a business to meet its deadline could result in the following: high client turnover, complete loss of clientele base, loss and depletion of revenue and profit, additional expenses, forced discounts in hopes of keeping client base, time wasted finding and researching other shipping companies, bad reputation within your industry, inability to accomplish work on time (chemical cleaning), et cetera. In other words, as innocuous as a missed deadline due to late shipping might seem in the grand scheme of business operations, late shipments can cause a chain reaction of significant problems that could one day lead to crippling your business, so much so it may prove too difficult to recover.

If your industrial business suffers from periodic delayed shipments from your chemical supplier, you need to nip that problem in the bud now before a series of unfortunate events unfold for you.

Five Reasons to Investigate Chemical Leasing

chemical-leasingThe instituting of chemical leasing as a method of providing chemicals – from supplier to end user – is a brilliant service based business model that supports and ultimately nurtures the idea of making chemical management sustainable. In addition, the process of chemical leasing offers an excellent response to the most recent changes and amendments to international chemical policies, which are working towards reducing the quantity of wasted chemicals. Chemical Leasing, as it stands, is redefining the sustainable management of chemicals, directly influencing the movement toward limiting the provisioning of too much chemicals to end users that ultimately waste the chemicals, because an overabundance was supplied.

Traditionally, suppliers, in order to maximize profits and generate as much revenue as it can, will sell large quantities of chemicals to the end users (industrial businesses, manufacturing plants, etc.). Because economics play such an important role, it is in the best interest of the supplier to sell as much chemical solvents as possible. Unfortunately, this chemical purchasing process which puts into action the inefficient use of chemical supplying is monetarily rewarded. However, the surging approval and rapidly increasing popularity of chemical leasing is combating the wasteful alternative process. Below, you will see five reasons why all companies that are in need of chemicals should investigate chemical leasing.

  1. Chemical leasing has already proven to reduce chemical waste, because it eliminates the protocol of end users having to purchase an already specified amount, in which the excess amount almost always becomes wasted. More waste leads to the potential for more chemical disasters. Less waste reduces that ominous potential.
  2. Chemical leasing has proven to increase the financial benefits of both partners, even the supplier, because it guarantees an ongoing business relationship with a continued provisioning of chemical shipments. These business relationships can end up becoming long term commitments from the formation of such a positive partnership.
  3. Chemical leasing encourages both waste reduction and waste recycling, which leads to less negative environmental impact, and increases in environmental safety. Less chemical waste means a less likelihood of hazardous substances reaching the planet’s environmental resources.
  4. The reduction of chemical waste has proven to reduce the possibility of placing workers and employees in harms way, effectively minimizing the chances of accidents involved in industrial facilities. Some toxic chemical substances have proven to induce physical illnesses and ailments.

There is a direct link to chemical waste and chemical spills, meaning towns and local denizens living near industrial plants will less likely be exposed to a chemical spill, which could contaminate resources, such as water, the air, and even crops and other types of food consumed.

What is Chemical Leasing?

To those of you involved in industrial business practices who might be unfamiliar with the business practice of chemical leasing, this blog will hopefully shed some light on the practice, because it can make a big difference for your industrial business. First, chemical leasing involves a chemical company that supplies its developed chemical(s) for a specific purpose, making a chemical available for use to a client or customer, but that chemical company retains the rights and ownership of that chemical. At first, this might sound like a questionable business practice to industrial businesses that use certain chemicals to clean and degrease industrial parts, metals, and materials of particles and contaminants that prove harmful to an industrial components intended use. However, the intention of chemical leasing is to improve the economical and environmental factors involved in the use of chemical agents to clean and degrease industrial components. Essentially, the producer of a chemical makes available the functionality of a chemical, but not the chemical itself. Why? Well, chemical leasing allows for the sustainable management of chemicals. Some may read this and feel as though it is a method of policing industrial organizations. However, the truth is chemical uses are constantly changing. Putting those who developed the science behind the produced chemicals responsible for making the necessary changes or improvements on the chemicals in use, or even recalling or terminating its use if it has been found that the compounds that make up the chemical are hazardous to people and/or to the environment ensures that safety is optimized.

It has been determined that industrial businesses who use chemical components to clean and degrease industrial parts, metals, and materials do not keep up to date with changes in the effects and ramifications of using certain chemical compounds. You see, sometimes when a chemical has been put in commercial use several years ago, it can still have discoveries made on it several years later that would require changes made to the chemical, and more often than not the scientists behind the creation of the chemicals are usually the ones making the discovery, or the ones first notifies. Unfortunately, the industrial organizations using the chemical, that has been recently found to be potentially harmful, are the last ones to know about the news, and keep the chemical in use a long time after it has been determined to be unsafe. Moreover, some industrial businesses are so happy with the cleaning and degreasing elements to the chemical it uses that there is hesitance to replace it with something else, even if it has been determined as hazardous. By placing the onus of monitoring the compounding agents used in creating certain chemicals on the chemical company through the practice of chemical leasing, it is easier to stop the use of specific chemicals and make the necessary changes to ensure no harmful agents are in commercial use.
