They say time flies when you’re having fun. That is so true. It seems like yesterday I was starting my company on a shoestring. But today we are over 31 years old with almost 50 employees. It took an enormous amount of hard work and sacrifice to get here. But when you are doing something you truly love, it doesn’t feel that way. And to say I was lucky is an understatement. You need luck no matter how hard you work. In my case, the bulk of my luck came in the form of the people that I’ve been blessed to work with over all these years. Employees, customers, suppliers, and colleagues, thousands of wonderful people who have played a part in our success every step of the way. And while we tend to measure our success in sales, that is not our job. Our job is service. Serving our customers well, whether they are inside or outside our walls, is what makes us successful, and what satisfies our drive. In the early days I thought I would be most happy making a big sale. But it turned out I got just as much, if not more, satisfaction helping a customer out of a tough situation, or providing a product that would help them grow their business.
Charkit continues to grow in ways too numerous to mention here, and in ways not measured in terms of sales. We continue to strive to be better at our job. And that job, our only job, is to make you, our customers, colleagues, and friends, proud to know and work with us each and every day.
Thank you for your support.
Charkit Chemical Corporation
