Three Generations of Family @ Veckridge

On June 12th, 1949 Ernest Veca made his first deposit with the Trust Company of New Jersey and Veckridge Chemical was officially open for business.

Soon after leaving Standard Oil, Ernest began marketing bleach he diluted himself in the cellar of his family's home in Jersey City. Even in 1949 Veckridge Chemical knew that the way to win a customer's trust was to exceed their expectations; Ernest would load up the family station wagon and run cases of bleach up and down the stairs of local tenements and hand deliver cases to the local grocery stores.

In 1981, Ernest sold the company to his six children; Dorrine, Margaret, Mark, Robert, Thomas, and Josine. The company grew to over $34M in sales under their stewardship.

Today, we are in our third generation and just as committed to serving the customer as we were in 1949. We have invested heavily in digital capabilities to provide value to our customers and we have grown to market over 1,000 molecules in packages ranging from 5 gallon buckets to railcars and everything in between.
