Responsible Distribution Canada’s (RDC) Statement on the Devastation on the Gulf Coast

A message from RDC:

The Canadian chemical and ingredient distribution sector’s member and affiliate companies extend heartfelt support and prayers for our colleagues, their families and all people in the Gulf of Mexico areas being hit hard by Hurricane Harvey.

RDC’s Members and Affiliates are concerned about our Customers needs.  Until Hurricane Harvey’s destruction can be minimized and the zones devastated can be brought back to safe conditions, service levels will be disrupted and supply of product will have significant reductions.  RDC’s thoughts are for the people affected by the hurricane, while maintaining the commitment to the sustainability of the industry.  The Association will continue to keep Members and Affiliates updated through social media, the website and other communication channels.

If you would like to make a donation, please visit the Red Cross by clicking this link:  https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-harvey  or through Salvation Army link: helpsalvationarmy.org or Call 1-800-SAL-ARMY or  Text “STORM” to 51555


Responsible Distribution Canada is made up of 45 member companies that operate 155 sites across Canada employing 3,300 Canadians.  As champions of health & safety, both the Association and its member companies take every practical precaution towards ensuring that products and services do not represent an unacceptable level of risk to its employees, suppliers, customers, the public, or the environment.

RDC’s member companies are major importers and suppliers of chemical and ingredient substances to Canadians sold into all market sectors. Collectively, members sell over 10,000 chemical products to more than 100,000 customers.
