Norman, Fox & Co.’s history dates back to 1971 when Herb Norman and Fred Fox purchased the soap manufacturing equipment from Swift & Company and opened a small firm in Vernon, California, that manufactured and sold tallow based soap. The company quickly moved into the chemical manufacturing and distribution businesses and grew quickly throughout the western region.

In 1976 the company decided to add additional equipment to expand the manufacturing capabilities. This equipment included a reactor for making alkanolamides and esters. They also installed liquid blending and drum filling equipment, additional bulk chemical storage tanks, expanded the packaged goods warehousing and material handling facilities.

In 1997 an additional ambitious expansion of the company’s chemical processing facilities began. Additional bulk storage, chemical blending and reactor capacity were the key elements in this expansion.

From its inception, the company has attracted major national chemical companies as principals for the distribution operations, and this continues today. Our key principals include Akzo Nobel, Lonza, Momentive Performance Silicones, Huntsman Chemical, Calumet, Oleon, Chevron Phillips, along with numerous others.

Besides the branded products of these companies, we distribute and resell many related materials manufactured to our exacting specifications under our own Norfox brand trade name.
