Additional Information: 

The Pennsylvania Salt Manufacturing Co. was established in 1850 by five Philadelphia Quakers. Several years after its 100 year anniversary the company changed its name to Pennsalt Chemicals Corporation. At the time of its creation there weren't any allocations for chemical companies, so they were founded as a salt company. Pennsylvania Salt Manufacturing Co. was mainly known for producing caustic soda but also made soaps and candles for their clients. With the last acquisition and name change in 2004 resulted in what the company is known as today: Arkema. They are known for specializing in three areas: high performance materials, industrial specialties, and coating solutions.
