Charkit Chemical Corp. (Darien, CT) is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Founded in 1982 by its current president, Charles Hinnant, Charkit began by focusing on just a few industries that required specific specialty chemicals. Since that time, Charkit has expanded its range of products to serve the specialty chemical, flavor and fragrance, personal care, food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
Of the company's history, Hinnant said, “Because of our willingness to adapt with the times, we implemented a policy of expanding our capabilities to meet the needs of a changing business environment. We have consistently accommodated market uncertainties and unexpected events, taking a flexible approach in all of our dealings. It’s been an important factor in our ongoing growth.”
