K.A. Steel Chemicals is one of the largest distributors of caustic soda in the United States and the largest manufacturer of sodium hypochlorite (bleach) in the Midwest.
Unlike full-line chemical distributors, KASC specializes in these two primary products — and has for half a century. So, when we claim to be experts, we really are — our fifty years of experience and knowledge, along with our continued success proves it.
Our business is simple — to meet the chemical supply demands of our customers with world class service & representation. And our products are pure — state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and top-of-the-line transportation and storage facilities guarantee chemical shipments of the highest quality. That's our company mission - pure and simple.
KASC was founded in 1953 by Kenneth A. Steel, Sr., to produce and distribute bulk inorganic chemicals for specific industrial and municipal markets in the Chicago Midwest. Since 1980, with the succession of management to second-generation family members, KASC has continued to expand its mission to serve similar markets nationwide.
