A Proud Heritage Of Serving Customers Around The World

In 1984, Kosh Daphtary and his wife, Surma, started Chemtech International with just $400. From that modest beginning, Chemtech has become a global leader in the international marketplace.

It all started when Kosh came to the U.S. in 1963 to earn bachelor degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry; a master’s degree in chemical engineering and completion of the Wharton School of Business and Management Graduate Program. This was followed by experience in a variety of industries, including pulp and paper, plant design, consulting, construction, and chemicals.

Kosh then traveled to many parts of the world and uncovered an opportunity to distribute products in the emerging field of environmental compliance and in specific aspects of the chemical industries. And Chemtech International was born.

Kosh taught his wife the business and gave her technical training pertaining to the products Chemtech sold. She kept in touch with the domestic and overseas customers, and took care of administrative and day-to-day operation of the company.

The business grew at a steady pace and Kosh became actively involved in the local, domestic and international trade community. By 2010, 50 percent of Chemtech’s revenue was generated from exports to almost 30 countries.

Kosh and his family still run the business today. Over the course of the 30 years, the family has taken great pride in serving their customers with the highest quality products and the best service. Every few years Chemtech reinvents itself, introduces a few products that customers want, in order to maintain its export growth.

Kosh’s son, Neel Daphtary, joined the company in 2001 as a Sales person. He has a B.S. degree in Marketing from Cabrini College. And today he is President of the company, runs Sales and Marketing, and (with some help from Kosh,) oversees the entire domestic and international business.
