We’re big, but in a very small way.

Armand Products is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of potassium carbonate, but we take a very small business approach with our customers. We have the capacity to fulfill large orders, and the personal touch to make sure every customer feels like our only customer.

Our products set benchmarks for purity and performance, meeting the highest quality standards in the world. Our Muscle Shoals, Alabama, manufacturing facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified, assuring top-quality, consistent performance, and outstanding service.

Just like us, many of our customers are leaders in their industries. They rely on our experienced research and development experts to help them solve problems and improve performance across wide range of applications.

Whether it’s troubleshooting a technical issue, making it a pleasure to place an order, or getting you a rush delivery, we’re always happy to help.
