In 1972, Robert Drexel Shockey saw the need for a special breed of supplier in the field of agricultural chemicals. He began Drexel Chemical with the commitment to provide quality products at an economical price. He knew that with a dedication to new technology and the constant fine tuning of the production process, costs could be controlled without sacrificing quality.
These are the principles that have made Drexel Chemical Company a leader in the agriculture, turf and ornamental chemical industry for over 40 years, as well as setting the standard for generic pesticides. Because of this, Drexel experiences over a hundred million dollars in domestic and international sales annually.
“The bottom line is that the grower has to use chemicals to help produce a healthier, more bountiful crop. If we can supply him those products at a more economical price, he stands a better chance of making a profit. Helping the grower to succeed is imperative to the long term success of the entire agricultural industry.”
—Robert D. Shockey
WHAT MAKES DREXEL A BETTER CHOICE FOR TODAY’S GROWERS
Drexel Chemical Company strives to make a quality product at an affordable cost to growers. Since the company’s inception in 1972, Drexel has been a staple in the agricultural chemical industry.
Drexel has an outstanding customer service department that is available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday for all chemical needs.
Drexel Sales Representatives are available as well. Sales Representatives are a great resource for all growers to use, for questions, concerns, and inquiries about specific products. Growers’ dedication to Drexel Chemical Company has made the company soar to new heights and reach goals that without the growers could have never been possible.
Drexel has positioned itself as a leader in product formulation development.
Thus, we provide the following formulations:
These formulations are true solutions, whereas the active ingredients are totally dissolved to maximum concentrations in water. Since the active ingredient is already dissolved as a concentrate in water, mixing at field rates is problem-free. Drexel’s aqueous concentrates also contain wetting agents that promote coverage and penetration.
Liquid Flowable Formulations
Flowable formulations are finely ground so that products remain suspended during storage, allowing maximum active ingredient levels to be incorporated into the formulation. Careful design and control of the suspension and dispersion agents in the formulations promote stability and trouble-free spray solutions when mixed at field dilution rates.
Water Dispersible Granules
Dry flowable granules are comprised of finely ground particles in order to achieve maximum dispersion, suspension, and coverage. Drexel’s water-dispersible granules are properly sized for coarse and fine fractions in order to minimize dust and efficient handling and mixing of the product. Our water-dispersible granules contain the highest achievable active ingredient levels obtainable in a water-dispersible granule formulation.
Utilizing our unique milling process, Drexel offers a line of wettable-powder formulations that are ground for the lowest achievable particle size for maximum coverage, suspension, and dispersion as a spraying material.
Drexel’s product line of emulsifiable concentrates are made from very pure organic solvent carriers, which allow maximum active ingredient concentrations to be formulated. Since these are true solutions, no insoluble materials are present, which could result in plugging of nozzles. Careful control of the emulsifier and surfactant properties allow for easy mixing and dispersion of the products in water.
