Formula 40 years in business

On the 13th March 2013 Formula Chemicals (NSW) Pty Ltd celebrated 40 years in business under the control of the Smart Family.

From humble beginnings in Leigh Smarts brother in laws back yard garage at Putney to the present-day occupation of 4 factories in Hermitage Road West Ryde, the company has grown to be a major manufacturer and distributor of chlor alkali products to the Australian market.

Formula toll manufactures a diverse portfolio of products to some of the largest chemical companies in Australia including such companies as IXOM, BP/Castrol, Caltex, Integra Water Treatment, Diversey and Applied Chemical. Representatives from all these companies attended the function.

The event was attended by a large variety of Suppliers and Customers and Certificates and Awards were presented for the long-term relationships which had been built over all the years. Our State Member of Government, Victor Dominello was our Guest of Honour on the day and all Formula staff had a fantastic day.
