Challenges

Formula Chemicals is a worldwide supplier of specialty chemicals to the coating, ink, plastics and electronics industries. Started in Taiwan in 2011, Formula Chemicals established offices in the U.S. to expand their reach. The industry, however, has been held captive by a complex and an outdated offline purchasing process with long lead times. Formula Chemicals partnered with Weidenhammer to move purchasing into the 21st century to an immediate and intuitive e-commerce process. Because this was an industry first, we were breaking new ground.

Solutions

Weidenhammer’s creative services and Magento consultants helped Formula Chemicals multiply and expand their ability to receive and fulfill orders from around the world. The innovative solution will save Formula Chemicals weeks to as much as months’ worth of time over the old, outdated manual purchasing methods.
