About Share Corporation
In 1970, Paul Des Jardins had a vision.
His vision was of a corporation that offered its customers high-quality chemical products at a great price. On November 9, after meeting with 13 individuals who shared Des Jardins' desire and determination to make his vision a reality, Share Corporation was born.
Share Corporation's original strategic plan was to service the end-user directly with competitively priced quality products, all while assuring the corporation and its sales force of a fair profit. This plan was implemented at a small, 10,000 square-foot warehouse in Brookfield, Wisconsin, where $100,000 worth of merchandise was shipped in it's first month of existence.
Over the next decade, Share experienced tremendous growth in sales, size and diversity.
After moving into a new 30,000 square-foot warehouse in 1980, Share purchased Athea Laboratories, Inc., a specialty-chemical manufacturer and product development company. It wasn't long after the purchase of Athea that Share became an industry leader in the niche market of chemical specialties.
With the help of Athea's research and development expertise, Share quickly expanded it's product line to their current level of over 400 specialty-chemical products. From herbicides to insecticides to industrial cleaners to aerosols—Share has a product to serve virtually every industry and business.
Share's corporate headquarters is currently located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where today's employees continue to bring Paul Des Jardins' initial vision to light and maintain the family tradition that he instilled throughout the entire corporation.
