We strive to promote safe, secure and responsible distribution of raw materials and products as well as insure safe working conditions for all employees. Through evaluation and planning we can reduce the risks associated with handling chemicals.

Carrier Selection and Private Fleet

Safe Transportation of chemicals is essential in responsible distribution. Our drivers are fully trained, our equipment is properly maintained, and our products are contained and secured. We routinely audit our outside carriers to verify the same standards.

Handling and Storage

We insure that all products are stored and handled in accordance with all laws, regulations and acceptable industry standards. This applies to all Monson controlled and contracted storage facilities and transportation equipment. Meeting these requirements safeguards against exposures, prevents accidents and reduces emissions. .
