About Us

Ellsworth Corporation is a family owned business established in 1974 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Paul and Patsy Ellsworth.

The company grew rapidly through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions and soon developed a global system of branches and sales people who could effectively service the manufacturing industry. We currently have branch offices and warehouses throughout the U.S. and have expanded internationally with distribution and/or manufacturing operations in Mexico, Canada, U.K., Europe, Northern Europe, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Taiwan, Singapore, and the Philippines.


The company’s growth is attributable to the synergy between each member of the Ellsworth team and our organizational values:

  • Customer Focus at all times.
  • Integrity in everything that we do.
  • Quality in our work.
  • Cooperation with our coworkers, business partners and communities.

Over 40 years since its onset, Ellsworth Corporation has developed a reputation in the industry for providing an unusual combination of excellence in distribution and customer service as well as the most comprehensive level of technical expertise available. Today Ellsworth Corporation has grown into one of the largest distributors of specialty chemicals in the world and has developed unique technologies and operating strategies in the manufacturing industry.  Go to the Ellsworth’s Divisions menu to learn more about our quality products and services.
