OQ Chemicals Announces Global Sales Control for Carboxylic Acids and Aldehydes

Due to strong demand, recent short-term raw material disruptions, and to prepare for a planned maintenance turnaround at its Bay City, Texas production site, OQ Chemicals will implement a global sales control program for all grades of n‑Heptanoic Acid, n‑Pelargonic Acid, n‑Heptanal, n‑Nonanal, and n‑Undecanal.

OQ Chemicals will be evaluating all orders for the future supply of the products listed above to ensure that the company can maintain the reliability of supply for its long-term customers per contractual and other ongoing commitments.

The global sales control program will be effective immediately until further notice. Customers should contact their OQ Chemicals sales representative for more details.
