|"The Carpenter Chemicals organization has provided excellent service through installation, start-up, and ongoing production."
With strong backgrounds in both business and specialty chemicals and their applications, Mary and Scott Carpenter are equipped to make Carpenter Chemicals, Plaforization and Toran vital players in the pretreatment field.
Todd Carpenter, President of Carpenter Chemicals, graduated
from Stanford University in Political Science, and from the Georgetown
University Law School. She speaks six languages. Before starting
Carpenter Chemicals with Scott, they owned the consulting firm of
Carpenter & Carpenter, LC, which provided services to small-
and medium-sized businesses in the specialty chemical industry seeking
to enter the US market through acquisition, merger, trading agreements
or joint ventures. One of the company’s clients was PaiKor,
and that consulting engagement eventually developed into the present
relationship, first with PaiKor and now with Chemtec.
Prior to founding Carpenter Chemicals, Mary was a
founding partner in the law firm of Carpenter & Precup and,
before that, she was a partner in another Washington, DC firm. She
began her career at the Federal Trade Commission and as counsel
to the US House of Representatives’ Commerce Committee.
Carpenter, Vice President of Carpenter Chemicals, graduated
from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in
Chemical Engineering. He was employed for many years by the Cabot
Corporation. As a Vice President he built the market both nationally
and internationally for the fume silica Cab-O-Sil, a specialty product
used as a performance enhancing additive in many industries –
paint, silicone rubber, pharmaceuticals and others. He became an
expert with those industries and with technical service issues associated
with specialty products.
After Scott took early retirement from Cabot, he and
Mary founded Carpenter & Carpenter, LC and, subsequently, Carpenter
