Jost Chemical Celebrates 35th Anniversary During Exciting Period of Expansion
Jost Chemical, a global leader in the manufacture of high purity specialty chemicals based in St. Louis, Missouri, recently marked 35 years in business. Founded in 1985, Jost Chemical achieves this milestone during an exciting time of expansion, fueled by a broadening global demand for high purity chemical salts.
“We are very pleased to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. It has been an outstanding journey working alongside our team members and customers who are a part of the Jost Chemical family and share in our growth and success. We look forward to continuing to expand our next generation team and relationships, while striving to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” said Jerry Jost, president and founder.
The company has enjoyed continuous growth for the past 35 years and the Jost team exceeds 300 employees – a quarter of which are chemists and engineers.
“Expansion has been a part of our company culture since the beginning,” Jerry said. “We’re constantly investing to improve quality and innovate with new products that successfully address our client’s specific needs and new regulations in the marketplace.”
Jost’s FDA-registered manufacturing sites in St. Louis, Missouri, consist of four buildings, total 27,800 square meters, and operate under bulk pharmaceutical cGMP. A brand new 4,600-square-meter facility in Kościan, Poland began production this year.
“This new plant will enhance our responsiveness to the European customers. It meets stringent quality standards such as FSSC 22000 certification and also features many sustainability initiatives,” said Jerry.
The company manufactures a wide selection of more than 200 products on site at their FDA-registered facilities while continuing to introduce new items. Jost manufactures and rigorously tests every high purity chemical salt they sell. Using innovative and controlled processes, Jost manufactures products unmatched in their quality as well as purity.
“35 years later, we are still here in this industry because of the quality of our products – we are propelled forward by our expertise and solutions for customers,” added Jerry.
