Columbus Chemical Industries has developed and implemented systems designed to continually improve the safety and security of the organization. As part of these initiatives CCI has participated in Alliance for Chemical Distribution (ACD, formerly NACD) verification. The ACD, established in 1971, is an international association of chemical distributors and their supply-chain partners which requires members to continuously improve performance in protecting health, safety, security, and the environment.
