About Us

When you think of Hydrotropes, you think of Catexel Nease. For over 50 years we have been meeting client needs by focusing on our customers and making sure we produce a promised product. Today Catexel Nease continues our commitment to providing quality hydrotropes, but we offer much more than that. As a leader in the production of sulfonated aromatics, Catexel Nease has a broad hydrotrope line which is complemented by an ever expanding capability in specialty products with a basic strength in sulfonation technology. Founded in 1951 as the Pedlow-Nease Company, the name changed to Nease Chemical Company and we began the manufacturing of hydrotropes in 1958. Acquired by Ruetgers AG in 1978 we were renamed to Ruetgers-Nease, but reorganized and became Ruetgers Organics Corporation in 1997. Two years later in 1999 our Marketing and R&D functions relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio so we could better serve customers.
