About Us

Químicas Unidas was founded in 1964 by Dr. L. Hart to represent chemical companies and distributed their products in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our focus on our customer relations and personalized service made us into a solid institution and leader in our market.

We represent companies such as Crompton Corporation (previously known as Witco Corp.), Reheis Inc., Welch Home & Clark, Akzo Nobel, Crisón, Andek, Corp, just to mention a few, with a variety of products for the pharmaceutical, construction, food and agriculture industries. Our customers include prestigious companies such as: Bristol Myers Squibb, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Wyeth Ayerst, Lanco Manufacturing, Harris Paints and Abbott Pharmaceutical.

Químicas Unidas has grown to be among the leading distributions of top quality waterproofing and insulation products. We distributed IPI Foam Systems for more than 35 years, company which later merged to become part of the multinational company BASF Corp. We now continue with the exclusive distribution of BASF's polyurethanes and coatings which covers all the products needed for roofing, waterproofing, and insulation, including warranty programs issued by this multinational company.

Throughout the years we have diversified in our offering of products to the industry our agreements with Versico and Carlisle Energy Services. This has helped us be a one stop shop for the variety of waterproofing reality that exists. We have decided to refocus our perspective towards sustainable products that are of benefit to the environment. Throughout time we have offered the highest quality products that have been measured by the highest standards in the industry. At the same time the companies which we distribute have been pioneers in offering construction products that are LEED compliant or green.

Some of these products are spray polyurethane foam, EPDM, TPO, vegetated roofs, photovoltaics, insulation both on boards and injected, among others.

Besides our distribution, due to the increase in demand, we are also providing the following services, consulting, inspection and most of all general roofing contracting, including maintenance jobs. This demand has come as result of the need of warranty jobs that need to rely on an institution that is both knowledgeable and dependable. One of our biggest clients in the Island is the Department of Economic Development and Commerce, or PRIDCO ("Fomento") among others.

Our main market is Puerto Rico, but we have expanded our core business, but not limited to, Dominican Republic and Latin America.
