Since 1945, AMVAC? Chemical Corporation has successfully served the results-driven global markets through development, manufacturing and marketing products for agricultural and commercial use.

Our Products. Your Progress.

That’s AMVAC Chemical Corporation—a forward-thinking company fueling growth through customer focus, intelligent acquisition, technology solutions, product development and supply management.

Founded in 1969, our industry experience and innovative spirit work as one. That’s how we deliver unique solutions for the broad array of challenges in agriculture, turf and ornamentals, nursery and greenhouse, commercial, consumer and public health markets. That’s how we acquire, defend and support the right products for the right application. And that’s how we continue to forge new solutions in an ever-changing industry.

Through our uncompromising pursuit of stronger results—and relationships—with every customer, retailer and supplier, AMVAC has earned a place among the top chemical providers in the world. We are publicly traded as American Vanguard Company (NYSE: AVD) with AMVAC being the largest operating company within AVD.

AMVAC has grown in markets globally, with businesses in Mexico, Latin America, Europe, Brazil, Australia and Canada—while continuing our growth nationally with four U.S.-based plants. Our locations are strategically chosen with quality control, efficiency and customer proximity in mind.

Our in-house Innovations Center designs and develops state-of-the-art formulations and chemical processes to deliver differentiated and value-added solutions.

We form alliances with companies from around the world to enhance our portfolio of products. Expansion means we can protect important, tried-and-true products, control costs for retailers and bring top minds together to create breakthrough solutions—including precision application technologies like SIMPAS? application system and SmartCartridge? containers. Simply put, there’s no niche too narrow, or scenario too broad, that AMVAC cannot solve.

Through the decades, we haven’t lost sight of what it means to be a solid, well-rounded company. We’ve cultivated a team of experts who share our drive for industry leadership and innovation. We take pride in our widely praised customer service, reliability, effective inventory management, and a prolific line of sought-after products and delivery systems. And we wouldn’t have thrived for half a century if we weren’t up for the challenge.

The industry has been through a lot of change, and we’re ready for anything. We’re excited to continue as your pioneering partner in a dynamic, evolving landscape. That’s AMVAC.
