Founded by Charles Hinnant, Charkit initially focused on just a few industries that required specific specialty chemicals with Charles as the sole sales representative. Shortly after he began to develop Charkit's infrastructure and hiring of employees to support growing sales.
The expansion of internal resources and the targeting of strategic business alliances have transformed Charkit into an important resource for ingredients used in higher performing personal care, food, flavor & fragrance, water treatment, imaging, metal treatment, nutritional, pharmaceutical, specialty chemicals, and more.
