Warehouse, Castorland, New York
Slack Chemical Company Inc. purchased our Castorland plant in April of 2009. This 139,000 square foot facility had fallen into much needed repair and with the foresight of Slack Chemical Executives and hard work by its employees it is once again a vibrant, useful facility. Located in Lewis County, 9 miles away from our Carthage facility, it is an ideal location to store full truckloads of many of our products in dry, covered conditions ready for delivery at any time. Several area manufacturing plants continue to utilize Castorland as a commercial warehouse. The facility is staffed by four employees whose duties include public warehousing, maintaining Slack inventory, as well as packaging of dry products. Another part of our family that strives for continued "Excellence."

Warehouse, Saratoga Springs, New York
With competition for business increasing, the executives of Slack Chemical decided to reach out for a centralized location to conduct and expand our business in the Northeast. In late 2000 it was decided to construct warehouse and packaging facilities in the Grande Industrial Park, Saratoga Springs. In the spring of 2001 construction of a new 25,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility had begun and was completed by the fall of that year. Initial construction included a covered truck scale and rail siding. With additional construction in 2007, 2008 and 2011, it now exceeds 50,000 square feet of storage, blending and packaging. Current negotiations will augment initial acreage by an additional 25 acres adjoining the back of our current property. This venture into Northeastern New York facilitated competitive marketing in the Northeast. To date, its 25 employees provide service with our Saratoga fleet of more than 10 tractors, 4 straight trucks and 3 mini-bulk-delivery trucks. A compliment of 9 tankers and 10 van trailers, maintained by 2 full-time technicians, ensure safe operation of equipment. There are 12 bulk storage tanks and several thousand square feet for palletized material to meet customers' needs. With the addition of this storage facility and its staff in the Saratoga Springs area, Slack Chemical can ensure quality products and on-time delivery to our expanding customer base. Another part of the family of "Excellence."
