Independent Chemical Corporation was founded in 1948, by Benjamin Spielman. His wife, Rose, was the firm's first secretary and performed all of the office administrative duties during its early years. The company was founded to provide service to process industries in the New York, New Jersey, Metropolitan Area. Supply service was directed to the textile, leather, fur, and food processing industries; industries that required specialty products and a broad range of industrial chemicals to meet their growing needs.

Technology advances in the personal care field nutrition, pharmaceutical and health care industries created opportunities for Independent Chemical Corporation to expand its product line to include products manufactured by over 70 major domestic and international manufacturers.
